*Great* You'll love it. It is the best athletic vacation I've ever had.
>1) How far a drive is Roth from Munich, and how far is it from
>We are trying to book our airline tickets now.
Roth is only about 15 miles south of Nuremburg and this is a good city to
use as a base. I had no difficulties with taking my bike on the trains to
and from Roth. Munich is much further away, but it might be cheaper to
fly there from Dallas.
>2) Any tips on affordable accomodations?
I have a few suggestions. E-mail me and I'll see if I can help.
>3) Does anyone have a copy of a race application for 1995, or are they
>even out yet? How soon does the race usually fill up?
It will probably fill in the next few months. I would recommend getting
the application in as soon as possible. I have the fax number.
>4) Any information on the race course, water tempeture, air tempeture,
>etc. is appreciated.
It was about 85 F and sunny last year, but not very humid -- cooler than
Dallas during the summer.
The bike course is superb. The Europeans love cycling and they really
crowd the streets -- all are screaming and ringing cowbells. There were
120,000 people watching last year. The crowd and the competition are what
make the times so fast. Anyway, e-mail me if you would like more info.
