TBC Time Trial!

So today was the TT and we decided that we would get prepared the night before by making a bunch of burritos for the trip. It really makes for a great team building exercises.20140313_201244

After that I hit the hay, so I would be ready to get up early, for the trip. Once the morning came around, everyone helped pack up the team bus and then we left for the race.

We arrived pretty early because we wanted to pre-ride the course once, that way we would be able to get a good gauge on how to plan our effort . Right away I knew this course was going to be really fast and that I would not need to get out of the aero bars at all for the ride.20140314_065456

Unfortunately the day wasn’t very lucky for me, we brought rear two disc wheels and I didn’t win the drawing (we drew straws for the disc) to use the disc in the race. Which kinda sucked, but at least it went to my teammates who put it to good work, on the other side of things it would have been nice to have used.

Overall the race was pretty tight due to how short the course was, but we had a guy finish fourth with a 7:28 time and then I came in next for our team with a time of 7:43 which put me at 16th place overall.Connor Brown 2014

The good news is that I am only 25 seconds down from the leader and my teammate is only ten seconds down. Which means that we are in pretty great striking distance for the GC and we have a hard road race tomorrow to lower that gap down.
