Frostbite Time Trial

I suck at Time Trialing! I knew this going into the race but for some reason it did not sink in to me what a complete suck fest this race would be! The wind! Holy shit the wind! It was howling out of the north east, making the way out to the turnaround point crazy fast (32+mph) and then the turn around a low grade climb back to the finish life got real interesting. Guys the size of football players started passing me. My new lower handlebar position that seemed to work well on shorter distances seemed to screw me when trying to produce power bucking a 30+ mph wind. So I guess it is back to the drawing board for bike position, I think I'm going to raise the aero bars a little and see if a more open hip position might help. That said I know I need to eventually stop messing with position and just open my mouth and pedal hard.

Thanx Ross for the photo, for going and listening to me bitch!
Yeah Racing!!!
