Rouge Roubaix tomorrow

I am in the midst of last minute preparations for the first big race of the season tomorrow – Rouge Roubaix. Lennie and I are going to drive down together to spend the night in the closest town with a hotel with rooms still available (Best Western, Zachary, Louisiana). I just looked at the list of preregistered riders, and there are 74 people with lots of strong teams represented tomorrow. We will have to be very attentive to make sure that we are in the moves that have riders from the strong teams. Plus, I think the bigger issue is making sure that we are towards the very front of the group when we hit the first gravel section and going into each subsequent gravel sections. I’ve added them to my topocreator map below:
