Race Report written by Diane Elmore:
Steve Reed Memorial Time Trial is a 7.5 mile out and back flat as a pancake course located right outside of the Cape May Zoo. This race was very cold and windy! Probably the coldest time trial I have done starting the day out at 29 degrees!
Amanda, Taylor and I found each other first thing, and Amanda and I warmed up on the trainers, while Taylor rode to warm up.
At the start, going out there was a strong headwind to fight, stay small in, and bring a higher cadence going for energy to hammer on the way back. At the turnaround, there was a tailwind, but it didn’t feel as strong as the headwind going out did!
Great day for our team with Amanda taking 2nd and Taylor taking 3rd on the podium for Senior Women, and Diane taking 4th in Cat 4/5 women.
Cat – Senior Women
Amanda – 2nd place
Taylor – 3rd place
Cat – Cat 4 women
Diane – 4th place
