@TheRealScottyD Oh man, that's a tough one...I'm such a sucky TT'er. But yes I will come out to one if you show up. Deal!
There you have it I did Frozen Waffles now Bracket will be doing some local TT's this year. I say some because once he does one I think he'll HAVE to do more.
I pretty much treated this like a $20 group ride. Especially since there were just 6 Master's. The 123 field looked descent size for an afternoon training race in Springfield. I decided weeks ago I was going to mostly tail gun. Little did I know the eventual winner(Mr. Ski Mask) had the same idea, except for different reasons. A few guys tried to gap me off several times so I had to inform them I wasn't really racing so quit wasting energy on me.
After the first 11 mile lap I knew I was screwed going up the Dam hill(it really is a hill up the back side of a dam not a Damn hill). I'm down on weight but also down on mileage. I held on & even took some pulls for the first 3 laps.
On lap 3 I got gapped off a little coming up the hill after the lake. I managed to tag back on. After this I decided once we hit the dam hill again I was going to sit up about half way since my legs were burning & my left knee was hurting pretty good.
I thought about bailing & heading home to go to work(I forgot to mention I had to go to work a few hours after the race) but hell why not get some miles. So put my head down into the wind & soloed the last lap. About got lapped on the line by Brad Huff winner of the 123 race(duh). Oops.
Packed up my stuff rushed home & got ready for work. Work SUCKED! not only was I tired from no sleep & racing but work was exceptionally busy. Stupid day light saving time. Always screws up the computers at work. Pretty tired this am but going to put on my compression tights & sleep it off. I might actually wake up to an inch of snow! Wasn't it like 70f Friday?
