Well In the back of my mind I knew it was going to happen but I didn't think they would really do it. Front row for 35-39 is almost all KC natives. The reigning national champ doesn't even have a call up. I bet they fix that. If we line up by bib numbers, which we are supposed to, I'm 3rd row(since I have a feeling there will be more call ups). So much for by registration. Just like State last year. Line up all the KC guys on the front, everyone else behind. What the hell did I stay up till midnight for? Would have been easier to move to KC. Hell I race almost exclusively there now anyway.
All athletes will be staged based on when they registered for the event.
