"Get set for a milestone time!"
For the 18th consecutive year, USA Today oddsmaker Danny Sheridan makes his picks for the Patch Sprint. In 2012, Sheridan had an off-year, picking the winner in only two of the four racing divisions.
For 2013 Sheridan says, "There will be a new overall champion, the record will fall and, quite likely, the sacred two-hour mark will be go down. The women's racing division is much harder to call.
"The rain and cool temperature will be hell on the volunteers and spectators, but will lead to super-fast finish times for the racers."
