Will the shade-supplying DCT tent be at the Mid-Atlantic championship? If so, might it be filled with extra ice, cold drinks, and electrolytes, given the sweltering forecast? :)

Highly recommend. At the end last year, there was a 'misting' tent with hoses. I stood under one for 5 minutes cooling down.

Working on it now.

My Subaru Forrester is taking 3 athletes and 3 bikes, so I'm working out who might be able to help haul stuff down to Richmond. Any volunteers? :)

I like the intel discussion on the course, etc. let's keep that going, too.

I'll bring one of the orange drink coolers that we use at the training events.

Anyone floating around out there who might still want to split a hotel room?

I have a bit of room in my car for some supplies; let me know if you need me to bring anything down!
