This Race Day Boost has me pissing like a drugged race horse! Or that’s my best guess since that is the only thing that has changed in my consumption. It also had my stomach doing flops, but I think I’m past that now.
I’ve had a decent week on the bike. I didn’t want to push hard, but I had hoped on feeling stronger. Maybe it was the weather, or mental due to the weather. We had gotten used to warm and humid weather and a decent amount of sun. This week has seen highs in the upper 60, and low 70’s, clouds, sprinkles. windy. Kind of depressing. The temps would have been great if we could have had some sun!
The forecast for Sunday is calling for warmer temps, and some rain. Right now, it sounds like the afternoon variety.
Start times should be posted today. I should have a early start, which is great. Preregistered there were eight in the 50-54+ category, three of those are out of state riders. I could be wrong but I don’t think out of state riders are awarded medals in state championship.
I did find the results from last years TT. There were six riders in the 50-54+. Only one of those riders preregistered. He has a time of 0:51:54, which was 6th overall. The second place 50-54’er rode 0:52:14 and was 7th overall. The next fastest rode 0:58:02, and was 32nd overall.
Times in my age group were 0:51:54; 0:52:14; 0:58:02; 1:06;13; 1:07:08, and 1;13:14.
I’m certainy not going in with great expecations, but I have to set a goal, which will be 1:05:00, which would give me a pace of 21.7
