Cape May TT Report

It was quit chilly this morning the bank temp near the race said 29' I'll guess around 35' at start time, so any way thats a little to cold for my legs they like it around 55 for a low, yea I know I'm a cold weather wimp, probably from working in such hot temps for three years 110-130', yes even in winter.
OK, so to make a long story short I came in dead last for my category, but I'm OK with that today was not about the win it was about getting back on the race horse after 20 years
On another note I met Dr."O", didn't you get first with something like a 15 minuets and change
Oh yea Doc thanks for the advice I'll give those position changes a try this week.
