Periodically, things just go awry. Tonight was one of those times. One person (Richard – but who’s keeping track) thought the race started at 6:30 and when no one was there he went ahead and rode the course on his own. Then he rode it again when he got back and realized what happened.
Once everyone was on the road, Gabe missed a turn and ended up somewhere off course.
Dennis set his fastest time ever though and Richard rode his second TT faster than his first one.
By popular demand, we added another time trial to finish out the year on August 19.
- Richard Hake 0:28:17 21.21
- Dennis Smith 0:29:20 20.45

Dan gave this recap of the event:
“It was a very tough course with a stacked field. The swim was fast. The bike course had some long climbs and quick descents. The run was just hill after hill. At that point it was quite hot so that didn’t help any. Managed to hang tough and ended with a spot on the podium.”
