Time Trial

Today I rode the Kampeska Classic Time Trial. It was a nice fun 14 mile ride... This course has a few hills, but nothing to the likes of Nebraska. I had a time of 45.21 which I was hoping to break 44, but I had a major error as I turned a corner and almost crashed. It took me a lot to regain my speed of 23 mph, but I'm glad I didn't crash. I won my age division and broke the course record today for my age group, but I got beat. I'm kinda disappointed about that. I didn't even know that there was another women ahead of me that I was competing with. She had a time of 42.57, so I'm pretty sure I couldn't have beaten her, but more props to her! It was fun to work that hard and have a lot of speed. I've had some challenging riding this spring already and can only hope for more this summer.

You go girl! Congratulations!! Glad you didn't crash and you still walked away with a record and a win for your age division - that is super! Lucky for me you weren't competing against us in the USD's intramural race the past couple of years!
