I did my first ever Time Trial event this evening at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. It was a 10 mile TT, which was 7 laps around the track. I've never been to a NASCAR race but it was pretty cool to ride my bike around the track
I was pretty pleased with my performance, I don't have the offical time yet but my Garmin says 25 mins 56 secs at an avg speed of 23.0 mph, definitely the fastest sustained avg speed i have ever done. You would think the track would be flat but it is actually undulating a little. Here is a link to my Garmin info. http://connect.garmin.com/activity/107390992
I was on my Cervelo R3 road bike with no aero aids like bars or wheels so I think I did pretty well. There were a lot of riders who were in full skin suits and high end aero TT bikes which made a cool sound as they whooshed past me, a very humbling feeling
It was a great event that I will try and do again.
