Roubaix - Uphill Finish or Flat Finish

Traditional Roubaix's have a flat finish.  The Rocky Mountain Roubaix has had a mix of flat and uphill finishes.  What do you like best?  Weigh in to the poll above.

I'm down for an uphill finish.  I think it separates Montana Roubaix from other Roubaix's.  It's not like the climbing in Cow Country, it's just a good way to separate folks at the end.  Anyways, I'm curious to see what ya'll prefer.

I thought the course was going to be the same as last year, is that correct?

Good comment Kyle. I don't know what the most recent status is, but I think there's been talk about what the finish should be like. Originally, it was scheduled to be the same.

A more appropriate pool question: "Should riders vote on what finish they like?"
A new etiquette just got born?

Good point Tomas. Riders choosing the finish is a new thing. Just to be clear; this poll will not choose the finish. As the promoter (Bob P.) will make the final decision. Thanks for the comment.
