Thanks for the update. Stage #2 up Devil's Kitchen should be interesting. I have seen people training there all summer long.

I knew that Floyd Landis (2006 Tour-de-France winner) was biking around the region on Thursday. He was officially competing today in the Epic, and will be in tomorrows Tour-in-the-Catskills race tomorrow. Tomorrows race up Platte Clove Road from West Saugerties should be quite interesting. It is a tough hill to climb. With this section being at the end of the race, it will be a game changer.
