  2. Breakaway will get reeled in and leaders will mark each other until the 5k banner. Not much will change. Maybe it will be a day of crazy attacks, but I don’t think it will. »

  1. Long time lurker, first time poster. Anyway, I love the idea. I’ve already got clearance from the Wifey to ride that weekend. Now this gives me an excuse to buy one of these!… »
