Just found out that Stage 1 of the ToC is coming within a quarter mile of my house (woot!) -- the route descends Jackson Drive and then heads west on Mission Gorge Road. That's about a one mile descent with a 90 degree turn at the bottom . . . and a concrete drainage swale in the middle of the turn (woot woot!!!).

Huh. Going right by Hollenbeck Canyon as well. Possibility of a mountain bike ride followed by tailgate spectating. But, flat there so they'll be hauling ass, even with feed bags on. Actually though, they haul ass even up hills. Here and gone in the blink of an eye.
