The Elkhorn Classic starts tomorrow.
GAS will have an impressive 6 riders in the pr0/1/2 field. The roster is, MSU all star, Scott Lipp, Alex Lussier, Brad Morgan, John Curry, Blake Wiedenheft, and defending cat 3 champ Brian Frykman. I'm sure MT Velo, 5VV, and NRO have had some fast/large squads at big races, but since I've been racing I haven't seen a MT team like this assemble for a big race. Six 1/2's all from the same Montana Team. Congratulations to GAS for getting their @#$% together. Frykman and Curry are on solid form. I can't wait to see GAS represent Montana on a big stage.
Brian Williams and myself are both racing. I've spent the week picking Owen's brain about racing in large 1/2 fields. He's had some good pointers on getting over climbs and positioning. I'm still very nervous and wish I could just start the race right now. I'm lucky Brian is on excellent form and should not need much help from me.
The ladies field will be well represented with a flying Frykman and PDowd. Amy is a 2 time Elkhorn Champ (4's and 3's) and his hoping for a good result in the pro/1/2 field.
Just because GAS elite is in Elkhorn doesn't mean there won't be a showdown on Flint Creek Pass on Saturday. I expect full carnage at that race. NRO will have a strong presence as will 5VV. Find the flier here.
