Nice course, insanely bumpy! Thought I found some pretty good lines during my warmup, but still ended up being tossed around like a rag doll until finally flatting after the wheelpit with 2 to go. But hey that's cross, good times!
Great course, although the barriers seemed a bit closer than the 3m UCI/USAC rule calls for. Heading down towards the lake section after the barriers I actually had my hand bounced right off of the bar. I had a tough time figuring out what kind of pressure to run and think I ended up a bit high. I will have to make sure none of my fillings came loose in my teeth after that course.
I loved the elevation change, especially after Lansing. All this course needed were stairs and sand and it could have been perfect. Can't wait to come back next year.
I also enjoyed the course. Thought the elevation change made a nice flow. If we would of had more normal Nov. weather I believe that the harshness would not have been there. I won't be at Montrose so good luck to all. See you next year at Jackson Park!
