It was a chilly morning for the last TT in the NJ cup series. This last time trial of the season does not allow for use of time trial bikes, so they playing field was pretty leveled across the board. This is also a time trial that includes the mile long climb up Naughtright road which averages close to a 10% grade and starts only one mile into the course. We all tried to get in a good warmup in anticipation of this really tough climb coming so early into the race. All three of us toughed out the climb and then the rest of the course was fun, fast and rolling with a long descent toward the end as well. I took second place for the Cat 4 women, Andy was third in the senior women’s category and Danielle 5th in the non-TT class. This was a tough but fun way to end a long season of time trialing!
