More of the same this century!
Last year's race was a big success. Thanks everybody for
participating. We can make this year as good or better by:
"To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift."
- helping the team improve. 1999 race pace per mile = 7:15. Can we
reach 7:05 this
year, average race pace?
- bringing the right gear and clothing for warm or cold
- being in shape and healthy race week.
- planning ahead: we all need to be in Monterey the eve of the race.
- helping each other with rides, training, and equipment
