In case anyone is wondering . . .

The Menno Cross course is awesome. There are lots of twists and turns on the hilly part. In fact, there is very little of that section that will not be ridden. But there is also a very long straightaway on the gravel to balance things out. And of course the bunker and the stone pit will be there to taunt you. There may be one or two puddles dotting the course as well, which may become a little muddy as the day progresses. We will see. But we managed to steer clear of the lake. After the whole Dirk Willems thing, Mennos can be a little skittish about the possibility of death by water. Not that they are afraid of drowning. They just don't want to interrupt their race in order to pull a pursuer out of the drink. That can only slow you down. Besides, it is so 1569.

See you tomorrow boys and girls. It's going to be a good one.
