Allervite and I will be there with a few cohorts from Redding. I'll be warming up next to a white Mazda P-5 on a yellow Ciocc if anybody wants to say hi. Or stick a pump in my spokes.

I'll be there, not on the start line but at the feed zone. What category will you be in?

Yellow Ciocc, yellow jersey, yellow Sidis, yellow gloves, for a yellow belly.

Didn't see you in the parking lot in my meanderings. Got there at 0710 and started collecting bottles for the feed, you may have seen me with all the bags loaded down, I was one Gunga Din today.

I was stationed at the beginning of the feed zone, I had 2 guys in your group, one was with the field, the other off the back on lap 2. It was a bad sight line for the folks in the feed, you had 5-10 seconds to figure out 1, which group, numbers were on the left, feed is on the right; 2, who is in this group; and 3, some of the riders had already passed earlier starters on the first (and subsequent laps.)
I couldn't pick you out as your group went by, must have been too much of the saffron.

At least there were folks helping out with a neutral feed, at Corral Hollow RR the week before, there wasn't anyone and maybe 5 people at the feed.

To all you other rbr racers (and riders thinking about doing a race), consider helping out at the feed zone; the racers really appreciate your support.

/shirt, hope you guys did well.
