Anything else you’d like to share?

Review and become familiar with the course maps. Bike or drive the course before the race if possible to familiarize yourself with hey hills, turns, bridges, etc. Attend the Expo and athlete meetings and listen to the PA announcements since sometimes changes are made at the last minute
