A few little birdies have recently reminded me that there is a cyclocross race at Veteran's Park in Charlotte this weekend. Unfortunately I have a prior commitment to heckle participants in a different kind of fun club down on the coast in Wilmingtoon NC. The Beach to Battleship Iron Man Triathlon. A few months ago a friend who had travelled with me on my first trip to the 3rd tallest mountain(El Pico de Orizaba) in North America called me to ask if I would be willing to take some pictures of his iron effort. Seeing that he and I had already been above 18,000ft in a snow storm on a a sloped glacier(de Jampa) together I figured sure, why not. So, after work toonday I will be headed down to get some sleep before the 0400hr wake up call near the ocean.
In the meantime some key folks in the 'industry' have asked for an Intel report from the venue. Apparently they are trying to get their heads wrapped around the layout of the park so that they can set up their pop tent in a nice spot. The selection of this spot is pivotal because it will provide the team with good public exposure plus allow clandestine cover for the 'Team' racers to sit around drinking beer and telling stories all the while looking pro to the crowd of public main stream masses.

The Entrance into the Venue.
Across the street from the entrance is this fine establishment. Wait, maybe this is a scary place.
