40km TT in Cloverlawn

Keen to collect some points in Cat4 and try to go under 1 hour for a 40km TT, Alex convinced Fast Legs Frank and I to head up to Cloverlawn for the 4th and final ITT in the Provincial Race Series.

The start list was posted and I was to go second from last.... directly in front of Alberta's ITT Godfather, Bruce Copeland.

As my countdown was getting closer and closer to zero, I was trying to psych myself up for a whole lot of hurt keeping Copeland off for as long as possible. My plan was to completely throw pacing myself out the window and just try to keep Copeland behind me for 20km. I shot out of the start gate like a rocket and hammered with fury and fear.... he passed me at 14km.

All in all, a fairly successful day out there:

Alex 4th in Cat4 at 59:44 (He beat one hour !!)
Frank 3rd in Cat3 at 56:55
Trev 2nd in Cat2 at 53:23
