More wind... come back tomorrow
By Jamie McEwan
It wasn’t exactly a quiet day at the course today, but the sound was not the roar of the crowd, rather the roar of the event-canceling wind. What’s a honed and hungry racer to do? A contingent of the U.S. team toured nearby Bratislava Castle; others could be seen paddling on the canal. If a high pressure system moves in as forecast, the next three days will be jam-packed with racing action! Stay tuned.
