We had head winds in September, and early projections are for winds out of the NE (slight headwinds) for October 22nd. It could easily flip around, but are headwinds normal for the later part of the year at ElMo?

I don't think winds at El Mirage are consistent enough to say that they'll be a head wind or tail wind based on what time of year it is.  I've seen wind direction change from a tail to a head wind in the same day before.

Just be ready, it is usually not bad enough to affect the slower sit on bikes however you may experience the following wind conditions.

1. Headwind.
2. Quartering headwind (rare)
3. Full Side wind. (Either side and you cant choose)
4. Quartering tailwind/blowing (more common than #5..again either from side however usually more blowing from the left to right just like "Politricks"
5. Tailwind, more pronounced in November usually a benefit for all vehicles.
6. No wind or very little. (run early and better chance of this) if a democrat run early and run often Smiley
7. Who cares, get there, get teched and get in line, be ready and do your best.  Good luck.

Sincerely,

Noonan.

Looking like quartering headwinds so far. Here's a source I like to use:
