Day before the race in Brive, and working on final preparations. All the team and crew are here and ready to go. Today was the opening ceremony, which was rather somber due to the passing of the race director five days ago. But the race will go on as planned. We've got six men, six women, a team manager and assistant, team doctor and two assistants, and I think nine crew members. Plenty of help. It's a good team and we're all excited. Some of us walked the course today and it's about 1200 meters and has sections of asphalt and hard-packed dirt. A lot of twists and turns, too, but hopefully nothing too tricky. Time to get stuff together and get some sleep. Post-race report to follow Friday evening. Wish us luck!
