Madison--the calm before the storm

We're in Madison now, arrived just before noon.  We got in 5 laps on the course this afternoon, which is almost identical to last year's, and a mix of mud and snow. Tomorrow is our first races.  Carl is in the 40+ B race at 1:00, he has the 9th callup, so will be the first rider in the second row.  Kristal races immediately after him in the Women's Singlespeed Championship race at 2:00.  She is the 5th callup, although she is ranked second, because three of the top 10 riders from last year are in the field, so they get the first three spots.  We're both psyched and ready to go--watch our Twitter or Facebook feeds for details as soon as we're able to post, or we'll have race reports up later Wednesday or Thursday.
