Good evening to all 28 of you who were mighty anxious to get back to the Tuesday time trail and hill climb series after a year plus off. We (I think maybe even all of us) were treated to an awesome wind out of the north. If you missed out on the turbo power-assist, I’m sorry! I rode around 2 and it was a full-on rip-snorter! It certainly gave me a time that really shouldn’t have been possible under normal circumstances in early April (although maybe some of my Zwift hours of suffering paid off).

A few things of note. First, my Garmin Edge timer and my Strava time were EXACTLY 3 seconds different so I’m happy with this decision that I made. Second, the Strava segment seems to be hidden so you have to ask to make it unhidden to get your segment time. Third, there seem to be two competing Strava segments – one is 9.2 miles and one is around 8.9. I honestly don’t know which one is right because I think the real world distance is around 9.1. Fourth, when you email me your times, please tell me if it’s from a real timer or a Strava time. Many of you did this but not the majority.

Anyway, great turnout tonight. As you might expect, we had some brutally fast times. Here are the results:
