    Church Creek TT on Aug 9

    Anyone going?

    I will be sucking wind with the worst of them, but I really enjoyed this course last year. And that includes gutting my way through double calf cramps.

    Course is as flat as anything you will ever ride on and is a giant trapezoid - no 180 degree turnarounds.

    I might be there as a competitor (a bad one, since i havent had one day on a TT bike or time to put one together) and a road guard as its my clubs event. But only if I dont get the call to motor the whole weekend in Rochester, NY for the Omnium that same weekend.

    Kinda strange. I put together my whole training schedule to peak for the Church Creek TT and Giro De Coppi and now one is canceled and the other I dont care about now. Wierd.

    The wind kinda sucks, though. Shame I'm still recovering from a broken collarbone or I'd be there.
    It's not how many miles you ride, but how hard you ride them. Time trials aren't races.

    The wind really sucks. I wish it was in Boonsboro this year. I liked that course.

    I didn't think the wind was too bad.

    Boonboro is a tough course - I think it would be pretty easy to over cook yourself on the multiple hills before you got to the end. It's a nice ride though, and well marshalled.
