A lot of precip this week, any chance Yankee will handle riding tomorow?

Good to go. We are not getting the rain and snow that some are in MI today. Trail is great today....perfect for Sunday.

You know it! We got hit with a crazy blizzard/rain/sleet mix that started about 11:30 and carried til just before 1:00. I know that there were quite a few that stayed away b/c of that. The trail was nearly perfect by 3:00. Yankee can take the rain.

Thanks to the two TC's that were working on re-doing some water run-outs yesterday. The conditions for the TT look to be perfect.

I rode yesterday late afternoon and the trail was great. considering the amount of rain over the past few weeks combined with the TT being held the day before it was awesome. The trail was mostly dry but with just enough moisture to maximize grip. There were some area's with leaves but did not present a problem. The sand was also not a problem. Yankee is an amazing trail....thank you to all that maintain it and keep it open for all to ride.
