  1. Dude...NO ONE I know has been accepted into this race. My understanding is it has become a clique-ride where the organizer's buds get to race, along with some big names to hype the media.

  2. The race just go too big for it's own good.

  3. I saw last years 4th place finisher, Alex Grant of MovaVie Cannondale didnt get in...
