it'll be fun!
times are approximate, but competitors should be rolling west down the hill beginning sometime after 645 am sunday morning. an unholy hour, to be certain. but giving all of them the benefit of a doubt, the first riders should be heading back east UP the hill around 730 or so.
i'll be there. will you?
it might get thirsty, so plan accordingly!
later in the day, the devil will be somewhere on the elite bike course. details will be made known on the grand avenue hill sunday morning.
i hope this answers this letter from "F.G." of des moines, who wrote: "dear the mostly reverend, i was going to ask you when you were in last week if the devil was going to be out on grand this sunday for the hy-vee tri? [i heard that you know how to contact the devil] i could only think by that point in the race a cold beer would be in order. --f.g."
