Pre-race routine:

Tried to stay warm, it was cold!!! My off time wasn't until 9:45 so I had some time to watch the early riders go off.
Event warmup:

Spun on the trainer for 20 minutes or so with some hard efforts. My legs were sore for some reason.
  • 26m 54s
  • 9.5 miles
  • 21.19 mile/hr

I still can't decide if I am happy with this or not. Initially I was disappointed because I really thought I could go under 25 minutes, but given the conditions I suppose I should be happy.
What would you do differently?:

Warm up a little better, I probably should have spent 40 minutes or so on the trainer to get truly warmed up prior to the start.
Post race
Warm down:

Rolled out and spun for about 15 minutes opposite the race on the trail.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not enough miles in the saddle this year and the fact that my new bike isn't exactly dialed in yet.

Event comments:

Surgesports does a great job of putting this event on. Everything was on time and there were plenty of volunteers to make it go off without a hitch.

Course: Out and back on the Silver Comet Trail. Overall was flat, but there is a deceptive area that is 2-3% for a few miles in the middle. It will make you pay if you go off too fast.
