Roger that! I have ridden right after the races before and see how knarly it gets but, it surprised me that I have never seen that section so deep and rocky.
Rode there in 1976-present off and on and dont remember it running west-east. Perhaps going up-hill, combined with being dry, is a bad combo!
I think we will see way slower than usual speed averages this year.
