CVC - Belmont/Piedra TT
Saturday turned out to be an awesome day. Great weather - much improved over last year's ice, rain, hail and sub 40 temperatures!
It was nice running into a few BF'ers while there...Skandal20...didn't see Vino, but he probably had an a great ride.
What did people think of the course - those who were down there? I'm sure there were more than a few who rode it.
I enjoyed having the flat section to start off with. The rollers were fairly gentle. I was surprised actually to have as much downhill as there was. Overall it seemed like a nice course. The shorter distance made it a bit challening in that I knew I'd have to push the whole way and it would hurt!
I was on my new TT rig which I have only had for about 4 weeks and ridden maybe about 3. That's not enough time to really adapt and adjust but I thought it would be good to try it out and see what happened. I'm pretty sure I made a good effort since my legs were feeling the burn most of the way, I when I went to hammer the hill at the end, oh man! I tried to sprint right before the finish but I couldn't. I figured that meant I had left everything out on the course which is good.
The whole thing felt strangely satisfying in spite of the pain. It was a good kind of pain though, the kind where you know you worked hard.
