The race course is ready to go. Corners have been swept and the Woodbury County road crew filled some potholes for us.

As of 7:00pm this evening the forecast is for an 80% chance of rain and thunderstorms overnight up until 7am Sunday. Tomorrow morning up until 1pm the forecast is free of rain. There's a 20% chance of rain after 1pm.

That's the good news. The not so good news is it's going to be super windy all day. Race time winds are forecast to be blowing at 28mph out of the south/southwest with gusts to 38mph. The section of the course between Climbing Hill and Old 141 can be tricky when the wind is strong. After the first 2 hills have been ridden there is a long descent then a short uphill going north followed by a steep plunge downhill into the corner going west. This corner is a place to be very cautious because it's possible to be pushed across the road by the wind funneling through that area. Grip the bars tightly, hold your line and be mindful of those around you.

There are a couple of sections on the north side of the course too where the winds tend to funnel across the road at the bottom of the descents. Again, be cautious and mindful of others around you.

We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.
