Race report - CMC 2up time trial
After a good gel fix I was back in the game and took some turns in the front, allowing my mate to drink and gel himself. The speed dropped from 35 to 33.5 onto the headwind and after the final turnaround I put my head down and went for it, unfortunatelly I wasn't doing super well and Martin was able to tow me at a higher speed. I happily sat in the back for 5 of the last 10m and was able to drive the last 3km.
We finished in a respectable 64.5min and waited for our mates.
We rode back 20km to the cars, and jumped on another 1hr trip to Auckland. It was a fun event and I wouldn't mind doing it again. Triathlon races are bike TT's in the middle of a swim and a 10km sprint, and the more practice I get, the better I'll be for Budapest. The weather could have been more gentle, but all in all I'm happy with my afternoon (probably because I didn't measure my HR, ha ha ha)
Date: 26 June
Dist: 68km (40TT)
Comment: racing, that's the name of the game
