Our info has been that this course will have some stair run-ups, but no man-made barriers, although that is not confirmed.

You should race, what's the worst that can happen?

From the flyer:

"COURSE DESCRIPTION
The course features a sled hill in an open grass park with
some sections of paved walking paths for recovery. Riders
will partially climb the hill twice on each lap and then face a
small climb and quick descent on the back side of the
course. Various off-camber areas, 180 degree turns, and
other obstacles will test the riders technical skills. This will
be a fast course but the steep climbing sections will make
your legs burn like never before."

I just hope its not as bad as the toboggan hill at Hawthorn Woods. That thing killed me.

This past one was my third. I actually felt somewhat competent this time. (but slow). Training nothing, just come out. Then when you get lapped by the fast guys you will have something to aim for.
