    First TT win

    Well, sort of. I didn't have much competition. It wasn't sanctioned by USA cycling either and was split into age categories. I won 19- 29. Then they had an elite category to for Cat 1's and 2's. I won my category and had the 10th fastest time of the day. I was also the fastest person there without a time trial bike, and none aero Ksyrium wheels too. 18.9 miles in 44:12, average speed 25.7mph. I'm great aren't I

    Sounds like you were hauling! 25+ mph on a road bike is serious power. Did you at least have aero bars?

    If youre not first your last.
    Please remember that all statements unless quoted, are strictly my opinion of what happened. That there are as many opinions as there are spectators attending. I just choose to publish mine on this forum. And would NEVER intend to purposely hurt or discredit any other cyclist.... With that said... HTFU!

    Nice!

    If I want to feel like I won something, I usually have to invent an off-the-wall category. Once last year, I had the best time among those with hairy legs.

    There were two of us.

    I don't use any aero equipment (including bars), but there are usually a few others with non-aero setups who still kick my arse.

    Holy sh*t that's fast (especially for a road bike)! Have you done a lot of other races?

    A win is a win. And that is a fast ride on a road bike. Congrats.

    Incorrect.

    If you are not first, you are DFL + x, where x = the number of Road Nazis who are, astonishingly enough, even slower than you are.

    Save the Vince Lombardi crap for somebody who actually gives a **** Mr. Velo Hardass.
