THE LAMB CHOP - RACE 6
Watopia Flat is a favorite for racers who prefer a flatter route profile. While most races on this route end in a pack sprint, vigilance and sweat are required if you want to hang with the front pack over the bumps and false flats to the finish.
There aren't any significant climbs so it gives more opportunity for traditional race tactics to come into play. While overall speed tends to be high, there are still sections of flats, rollers, and undulations that allow for opportunities to launch attacks and break up the group. A little different than the hilly routes where the race typically gets decided on the climbs by the climbers. It's more inclusive to the general population of cyclists.
Needless to say, this one is another bunch sprint prediction.

ABOUT THE LAMBCHOP
Lambchop is a unique handicap format where everyone can get involved. The Chop' is a handicap race which means people are grouped by skill and staggered, with slower riders taking off first. This gives everyone in every grade a chance to be there racing at the finish. So get your racing strategy dialed and be precise with your PowerUps near the finish line. If you have no idea what that means, then just ride harder.
