Pre-race routine:

Hung out with Brett, Rebecca, David, and Lou. Tried to stay warm and look like I had a clue what I was doing. Skinned my knee catching a woman who was falling off the starting ramp.
Event warmup:

Biked about 1.5 miles with a couple of pickups.
  • 33m 5s
  • 9.5 miles
  • 17.23 mile/hr

I had a good time at this race. I was nervous about the ramp start and of course almost fell off the ramp. I pretty much went all out for the entire race. I did get passed by a few people and did not pass anyone but my goal was not to be DFL. Accomplished it by :02!
What would you do differently?:

Get clipped in a ride bike up starting ramp.
Post race
Warm down:

Rode slowly for a mile or so. Went over to see Rebecca and Lou head out and see Brett and Rebecca finish. I had to go (family duties) so I didn't get to see Lou finish.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of training.

Event comments:

This was my first bike race and the time trial format was neat. It was a little depressing getting passed by two people in the first mile but I really went all out and now have a benchmark for next year.
