I am really happy with this race. It is a 2 minute improvement over last year (granted it was about 25 degrees warmer!). For a C race I think it is a good gauge of fitness and how my training is going.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing really, legs were a little tired from all the workouts this week. Overall though a good effort.
Post race
Warm down:

Easy spin coast down on about a mile of the trail in the other direction.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Sore legs, early season fitness...not much

Event comments:

The Tundra TT is a great test of early season fitness. Well run and a fun day all around.
