This month’s Time Trial was a race against the storm and every rider won. We skedaddled as the last rider came in just ahead of the rain and lightning. Gotta hand it to junior Justin Hizer who raced with two borrowed wheels, flatting both just before race start. Kent Woermann and Mark Thomas came to the rescue with the bottom half of a bike on a few minutes notice.
Thank you to Mark Thomas of LocalCycling.com for being our holder, USAC Official Jeff Englert for supplying the race safety signs, and Roger Harrison of Lanterne Rouge Racing for the bib numbers and a DOZEN CANS of spray chalk to decorate the course.
