bike race - 40K time trial state championship

The Texas state 40K time trial championship was yesterday, in Lytle, which is a bit west of San Antonio.

The weather started out looking good, but began raining at about the 1 mile mark, and rained hard for rest of the 40K ride. This was my first bike race under really wet conditions (I decided I prefer it dry).

My time was 57:23, average speed 26 mph. This just missed my best 40K time by 7 seconds. So considering the conditions, this was probably as well as I have ridden for 40K. I placed 5th of about 17 riders in the 50-54 age group.

Jon was 7th, so team "Lost Faculties" took 5th and 7th places.
