    terrible race possibly the worst organization i have ever seen , all the way from the start to the finish, extremely dangerous bike turn around no one slowing traffic no signs warning cars or athletes of a turn around having to cross the road to the other lane with no one slowing / stopping traffic , run was ok , this race series made a big song and dance about series champions then couldnt even get the results out only race i have ever done where they simply didn't do the results despite making the athletes wait around for two hours then they gave up and told every one basically to leave , but at the same time mentioning the great deal if you sign up now for next years race ! this is my local race and its such a shame its being run by people who are interested in $$ rather than putting on a safe and professional event.my advice take a little of your profit and hire a few extra deputies and a timing company that can actually time the race .
