Final Thoughts

It's going to be hot.  Come ready to ride hard, but please be prepared for heat and drink plenty of water!  Start drinking now! (water that is); I don't care how many times you have to wake up tonight!
Go time is 8:00 tomorrow morning.   Cue sheets and maps are ready hand out and final preps have been made!  
A couple house keeping notes: The Farmhouse Classic is just that.  A classic race from a classic old Farmhouse that my sister lives in.  Please show the respect and gratitude I have come to appreciate from fellow bike racers to my sister and her husband.  We will be racing up here as long as she'll have us!  As you are headed to the race, don't be afraid to stop and use the bathroom at a gas station or something.  My sister will open her house up to the handful of ladies that are racing, but the rest of us dudes are out of luck. Take exit 40 (Lathrop Exit) off of 35 and turn left on 116.  Follow 116 for 2 miles and take a left on Mule Barn Rd. Head south on Mule Barn Rd for 1 mile to 248th st. Take a right and house is there on the right.
My cell # is 816-820-0366.  Plug it in your phone now, but hopefully you won't need it.  
Cell coverage is spotty, but please have you phone with you in case of emergency. 
If any one has any questions feel free to drop me a line tonight.  
Look forward to riding with all of you in the morning.
-Cheers and tail winds-
