2021 Road Nationals – Time Trial

2021 Road Nationals – Time Trial

The Road Nationals time trial was a 15km, out and back, course that was mostly an incline on the way out and a decline on the way back.  The road was in good condition, but a bit bumpy, and the weather was overcast with a tailwind headed out.  Having been my first race in over a year and a half, I was cautious about going out too hard and blowing up, hurting myself, or damaging the bike.  I had most of the field in front of me and managed to pick off the guy in front of me before the turnaround.  While I didn’t make the podium, I did get 9th in the time trial and was very pleased with the result.  It was a solid result for my last race being in November of 2019.
