Race: Oldmans Township Individual Time Trial
Date: June 17, 2017
Location: Pedricktown NJ
Riders: Cheryl, Doreen, Danielle, Sarah H.
A rainy morning didn't dampen the fun of the Oldmans Township TT in Pedricktown, NJ. All riders warmed up in good spirits making the best out of the cloud burst that seemed to begin just as we got on our bikes. Luckily, the rain was tapering off as our ride times came closer. First off for our team was Doreen in the non TT. Danielle and Sarah started off next in the TT cat 4/5 and Cheryl was the last for us to set off in the Open Women. All riders noticed a steady headwind for the first few miles of the 8.5 mile circuit. Time Trials can be difficult to report from. It's really about being in your own head and going as hard as you can for the duration of the miles specified and that's a totally different experience for everyone. As a racer who is new to road racing, I wasn't sure how my mind and body was going to respond to the demands of a time trial. I have to say- I love every second of it. We ended the day with two podiums, Cheryl 2nd for the very competitive Open Women TT and myself in 2nd for the Women 4/5 TT. This was my first podium and I was super stoked to have my teammates there to cheer me on!
Open Women TT: Cheryl 2nd
Women Cat 4/5 Non TT: Doreen 5th
