Hot. That's the only way I can describe it. So hot that before you're five minutes into your warm-up you're soaked through your kit. Welcome to Louisiana, Riptide Cycling! The TT was my first race since I moved down here last July. I paired up with a local gal with whom I've been riding during a few of the group rides. We're well matched and in spite of the fact that I do not even own a TT bike, felt that we could put up a challenge for some of the stronger TT women around these parts. And we did. Out and back 40km with a crosswind and no shade. Helped remind why I love track and crits, it did!! But hey, we put in a strong effort out to the turn around, caught two other teams of women, and made a bee-line back for a 3rd place finish. Not a bad start to my Louisiana racing career. Miss you all up there, though!
