Additional ranking info:
Quite a few folks "no-showed" the race (wonder why?)...they weren't counted for ranking purposes; I also excluded Yth (who only rode half the course).

Out and back. This is not a flat course. The course is a section of the Silver Comet Trail located between Hiram and Paulding. The "out" portion includes some 2-3% grade that hits a rider hard. Throw in some head and crosswinds for good measure and a time-trialist has his/her hands full. This is where the real work is done. A good pre-race warm-up is key to hitting this portion with strength.
