East Canyon Road Race This Weekend....looks like we'll have lovely weather (sarcasm)

And the weather forecast for this weekend's race is...drumroll...

Good times.

Aaron, Dave, and I will be racing. The race has a lot of rollers, descents, with a few short climbs mixed in and a very gradual extended climb near the end. It'll be interesting to see how the group holds together over the course of the race. Perfect race for break-aways. The lighter guys should do really well on this course. I'm more of a diesel @ 180 lbs so we'll see how things play out. Aaron and Dave are both lighter so I think this course suits them perfectly.  We'll definitely miss having Mark with us, he's a tall guy, he can motor along with the best of 'em, but climbs very well. Weather will definitely be a factor. Bring yer cold & wet weather gear!

The course is more or less a semi out-and-back course that retraces much of it's route on the way back to the finish. Hennefer up to East Canyon State Park, back to Henefer, up Echo Canyon, back down, through Henefer (as if the kind folks there won't get enough of us the first two times through...) with a finish halfway back up to East Canyon State Park on Hogs-Back:
