First Road Race Ever


Well, I might not be one of the great performances that Trev talked about in the email, but it was a great race for me personally.

This was my first road race of any kind and I rode a TT bike for the first time. I must also say that I am glad that I took the spin classes this winter, although they did not seem to help me go any faster. They did help me make sure I did not go any slower.

I want to encourage all the other first time cat 5 racers to get out there and get your first race under your belt. No matter where you finish it will be a great experience.

I have already signed up for the BiciSport TT, so I will see you there.

Awesome! That was my first race ever too and it was a blast making my heart explode. Although judging by the legs I had this morning I could have pushed a little harder. I'm looking forward to some more team oriented races.

Congrats on the first race Scott. I warn you though. It is addictive.

Clark, my legs told me I could not have gone any fast, but I think my heart did explode on that last hill coming back.

Jared, I am well aware of the addictive nature of racing, it is even more addictive to be on an awesome team.

Way to go man. No better way to push that personal pain envelope than racing. A quality workout every time. And you just get faster and faster.

Hey Scott - Congrats on a great effort on such a grueling TT course! It was great to see you out there leaving it all on the road.

Way to go Scott you're making me feel pretty guilty for not attending. I'm attempting to train for a camp but feeling the pressure to race. Great inspiration Scott.
