          According to the e-mail I got from the race organizer, we have 40 participants so far.

              Make sure you use the new UCI classification. For example, some H1 is now H2, H2 is now H3, H3 is now H4, H4 is now H5. Also, you need a helmet with the correct color for your classification or use color tape to cover your existing helmet.

              Expect some really fast H3 guys there as they can average 25 mph in the individual TT.

                I entered as an H2 because I looked at the old classification. April the event coordinator corrected me as a H3. I can only avg about 15-18mph on my force 2. I'll see how much better I can ride on a Force R that the program near me has. I'm only going for experience and fun, I know I'm not competitive.

                April also mentioned 19 people registered and 9 in H3 and that they are not enforcing the helmet color.

                  It will be a lot of fun for sure, and you will definitely pick up the experience and get familiar with the courses Who can deny free hotels, right?

                    25 racers total, not 40 as stated earlier. My bad.
