On the Richmond course, I wonder about the ‘just ride’ starting point. I have a problem starting out on a 7% grade right from the go. On the Island and Watopia it was either a flat point or somewhat downhill, both of which allowed the legs to get a least a little warm before tackling the grade.
Not sure this is an issue for others but could we start a little closer to the start/finish line where it flattens some? I do warm up to calibrate my computrainer but still would like a little less aggressive start.
