2021 Road Nationals – Time TrialChris Sproule
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.
