Sissy Flag

My buddy calls finishing at the Flagpole "Sissy Flag". Logistically, I understand a finish at the top would be tough. But wouldn't it be nice to see those guys suffer on the Wall like the rest of us?
Here's more about it: http://blog.teamalchemist.com/. There is a vid of the descent of Super Flag. Beware, it's to the tunes of Justin Timberlake. Yes, I'm easily as sissy as the turnoff to the amphitheater.

Parking

This is a good question. Think about when there is a home CU football game. The capacity of the stadium is around 50K. I would imagine there would be more people watching the race than a CU football game.

Thanks goodness the race is spread throughout the city but it is going to be a ZOO.
