Low BT, your ride is confirmed. This is for those that we might have left out.

Camlok, looking at the current weather situation, it'll either be very hot or wet. If it is dry, I recommend using long sleeve jersey or arm cover or apply sun block. If it rains, raincoat will be good and you can leave it with one of the check point (CP) marshal if the rain stops. Umbrella.. hemm... maybe get your wife or girlfriend to shield you while waiting for flag off
