PRO will be streaming live radio commentary starting at 9 a.m. EST from The Fork. The action kicks off first with the Advanced, followed by the CIC3* at 10:54 a.m. EST and the CIC2* at 1:29 p.m. EST. This is a wonderful way to follow along with the live scores. Don’t forget to check out the course preview here, complete with analysis from designer Tremaine Cooper.

The course crew has been hard at work aerating and watering certain portions of the track, as Norwood ultimately didn’t see any of the rain originally in the forecast. The riders are saying the going is much better now, and we should see the majority of them go today. Here’s a quick update on who we won’t be seeing on course: Sharon White withdrew Under Suspection in the CIC3*. Becky Holder withdrew Frodo of the Shire in the CIC2*. In the Advanced Test A division, Laine Ashker withdrew Anthony Patch, and in Advanced Test B, Lauren Kieffer withdrew Lucky Devil.
