Course preview: WCCC Championship Criterium/Slug Cycling Criterium

This weekend, I'm heading to Monterey for the Slug Cycling crit. Hopefully the Wente road race will attract the strongest teams, leaving me with a fighting chance!

My recon work shows that this is a 0.5 mile loop (2679 feet) around an athletic field. The course features four turns, one tighter than 90 degrees, and an uphill finish. I expect it will be fast and furious from the gun, and it will take an early attack and a good position through that last corner to win the race.
