RACE REPORT #9 Cherry Creek TT series – week 5 CAT 4

Sunshine and 80 degrees yesterday, woke up to a steady rain, low clouds, and a prediction for thunderstorms and 20-30mph winds this afternoon. Hmmm, must be time trial day!! Oh, well – at least we’re not in Montana:

Today: Periods of rain and snow this morning, becoming snow, possibly heavy late in the day. Windy. Colder. High around 40F. Winds NE at 25 to 35 mph. Chance of precip 80%. 3 to 6 inches of wet snow expected.
Tonight: Periods of snow. Cold. Low 29F. Winds NNE at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of snow 80%. Snow accumulating 4 to 6 inches.
Tomorrow: Snow during the morning, with continued snow showers during the afternoon. Cold. High near 40F. Winds E at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of snow 80%. 2 to 4 inches of snow expected.

Well I might as well have been racing in 6 inches of snow. I actually felt pretty good, but boy, did I go slooow. Probably a correlation there…

23rd out of 37, my worst finish yet. I barely stayed under 28 minutes with a 27:56. Everyone lost 30-45 seconds due to the weather, I seemed to lose more than double that amount. Great. Kinda gettin sick of this TT stuff.
