    2 Man TT Partner?

    Looking for a partner for the ABD 40k 2 man TT this Saturday. I did a 1:00:03 last year with clip-ons and have a TT bike this year but I'm not in as good of shape right now. I am 48 years old and registered Cat 5 but will do whatever category.

    PM please if interested.

    According to this thread, you are your own partner, fatty

    lol ... I deserve that

    Luckily it's flat so the extra 8 lbs I'm hauling around shouldn't hurt me quite so much.

    What's the purpose of categories in a TT?

    Anyway, I'd consider it even though I suck at TTs, but I'll at Muskego Park getting my crit on.
    Bring the pain.

    What would happen if I teamed up with you on this one?

    Would your time of 0:54:30 count or would it only count when I came rolling across the line in a zippy 1:00:02?

    LOL, Had to read that three times before I got it ...

    Solely for the medals I assume.


    Psi ... I think we'd have an outside shot at the podium ... I'll race Cat 4. It's closer than Wis ...


    ... please ?


    lol

    Any *ahem* compensation for your TT-mate? You know, 40k is a long way. Just sayin'.

    Oh crap. I'm going to be up there on Saturday. Guess we'll have to figure another way around the Mound and just assume that part of the Double Or Nothing will be fine.

    I'd like to see last year's results to see who raced it. I imagine a lot of these folks do triathlons and why are these results still un- official??

    I finally got a partner ...

    He said we might break an hour ... I told him I missed it by three seconds solo ... he says after a long pause ... "You're a bit faster than me" ... Uh Oh ... LOL

    Hey .. I'm happy I got a partner.
