Race Report: PA State TT champs (most rolling-est TT to date)

Well, that sucked. Congrats to superhuman flier Al Arnal, and anyone else who did this. Tough course. I did it just because I thought it would be neat to compete in the NYS TT champs, NJ TT Champs, and PA TT Champs - my equivalent of doing the Tour, Giro, and Vuelta. Race report for those who care. For the rest of you, I took second.

I can't wait until I can be disappointed with a 26.8mph average over 40k

Nice work, and good report. I feel what you've felt, just 1.5 mph slower

God I need to get aero. This is why I won't do TT's regularly I think. At current fitness, I can hold that power, but my speed is WAY lower.

Nomad, you have some incredible power. there is no way you should not be doing TTs. The hard part is getting the power. The aeridynamics are easy...the thought of you back in the states scares me! You will be mopping up.
