We did a few tests over the week: An ITT, an uphill ITT, and a TTT. The ITT was 11.5k and we did it twice to test repeatability. We'd do 2 loops of a windy 3.6mi course with I'd guess a 100ft hill and a couple of other smaller risers. I scored the best time in the ITT, and my second effort wasn't much slower. The uphill TT was 1k and we did it 3 times, again to test repeatability. I scored the best time in it as well, and my repeatability was also good. For the TTT, we were divided into teams of 5 according to our times in the ITT, so I was put on the fast team and we made short work of all the others.

Lots of paceline and handling work, spent a little time on the T-town velodrome (and I'm thinking I may be hooked), sports psychology, etc. Learned a lot, met some cool people, hopefully made an impression, had a fun time.

I'm going to have to smack you around some, KP. You spoke Latin. Guess what Botto replied in?

KP, did I see you today at owasco? there were tons of windham folk, I saw a particularly lanky one pull out of the pack with what I thought was a flat. If that was you, that sucks, it was a really fun race.

You the man KP. Here's hoping you get noticed and shuffled into a real development program.

Will you take the shot if you get it?

Yes, that was me. On the upside, there was a great view of the lake from where I flatted. On the downside, I spent about 20 minutes waiting for the SAG wagon.

Where were you in the pack?
