Frozen Flatlands

If Frozen Flatlands was 30 miles farther it would be the perfect Spring Classic. I know they keep it at 50 miles because the loop works super well, but with the bad weather, short climbs, and constant winds I think it's a great early season race. It would be sweet if WA, MT, and ID could hook up and create a 3-5 race spring calendar. Frozen Flatlands, the Roubaix, and a couple others. Battle of the Northern Rockies Region!

I think all Montana teams will make an appearance next weekend. I'm hoping for good things from MT. I think the worse the weather the better MT folks will do. There hasn't been a flipping training ride over 45 degrees in weeks.

Last year this dude from Garage Racing won the 1,2 race. He held off Emde Sports and Vertical Earth. I'm hoping Tack can hold his own on Saturday and get into a break on Sunday. I've never raced a 3 only race. I'm expecting it to be alot like a college A race. It will nice to have some teammates.

Shaun, I think you really have something with the tri-state spring racing series. I'd be into making the "Spring Classics" as hellish as in Northern Europe!

Keep up the great postings. You have some good commentary going on here.
