With rain coming down sporadically around the San Francisco Bay
area, the AMA has decided to tweak the afternoon schedule in order to
salvage the race track in the event that it continues to rain. Simon
Cudby just called in to let us know that there will only be one
practice for each group today, and it won't start until 4:45 pm PST.
They will keep the track covered as long as possible before practice.
As far as the race schedule goes, it will basically be the same for
the top 20. For everyone else, they will use their practice times to
slot them on the starting gate for the heat races. No riders have been
eliminated from the program, as happened last year at A1. As of now,
all races in the night program are slated for the normal number of laps.
Hopefully, they won't have to make any more changes, but the weather remains the biggest question mark of all.
