My big bike project this year was building up a TT bike, hopefully learning how to ride it — and then of course seeing what I could do in a TT. All of this in support of my main racing goal this year which is to enter a stage race and see what I can do . . . (we’ll see about that after the Cascade Classic in Bend later this month). Here is my frame straight from worldwideglobalizationtimetrialframes.com:
Here is the bike built up . . . fun project
So, my first TT was at the District championships last month conveniently down the road in Sattley. I showed up and all these freaks on crazy bikes w/ crazy wheels and kooky suits and space helmets are rolling around. Turns out I looked just like them per the below (well, sans disc wheels,e tc.) . Dead flat 40k course. Goals: don’t get embarrassed, break an hour, don’t explode. Mission accomplished 53:30 and steady power, not much more to add from a race report. I think I was 6th in age group but out of only maybe 15 or something – the top guys are 5 minutes faster so that is probably more relevant then 6th. Anyway My family came out and seeing/hearing them in the last k was awesome . . .
