A few days back I raced my first time-trial.  The Haystack Mountain TT just outside Boulder.

The course was about 3 miles longer than last year’s and had a long, slightly uphill, into-the-wind finish.

I may have been one of the only guys on a regular road bike..  What was I thinking?  This is Boulder dammit! Doesn’t everyone have a TT-specific bike, skin-suit, and a tear-drop helmet for weekend-warrior activities?

The coolest thing about doing a TT is getting to compare my time vs. the Pros on exactly the same course with exactly the same advantages/disadvantages.
