    >> if you fall in a lake???

    At those temperatures? Crap, I’d rather deal with all the other things combined! Actually, come to think of it, if you do fall in a lake you probably have to deal with all the other things combined.

    Anyway, you guys are not going to fall in a lake and will be fine! Good luck, have fun, and kick arse!!

    Oh yea, and stay warm! But if your new Stormtech gear performs as well as it looks, that won’t be an issue.

  2. Good luck on the race!
