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.
Julie to the rescue! Looks like we will definitely have our tent and gear!
Anyone floating around out there who might still want to split a hotel room?
Would be up for splitting hotel room, email@example.com if still interested.
