Event warmup:

1 hour ride prior to start.
  • 25m 51s
  • 10.5 miles
  • 24.37 mile/hr

Very windy out with a storm moving in. Started into a headwind of around 25-30 mph and some gusts, I would estimate at 40. (Accuweather has it at a sustained speed of 28). Difficult to hold a line. Not one of my better efforts legs felt dead and heart rate was 10 beats below normal for a time trial so not happy with the result. Speed below normal but with the wind I expect that. I have had more intensity this week in training so am fatigued.
What would you do differently?:

Start easier. Went pretty hard for the first 5 minutes.

Warm down:

Short ride.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Been doing a lot of intensity on the bike and just not rested.

Event comments:

Always organized and on time.
