Kitt Peak TT 9-19-10

Excellent day at Kitt.  I’m finding my climbing rhythm again after missing it for a year or so.  Many ascents help.  I’m not fast but it feels great.

Gus blasted by me at about mp9, dude’s a stud with a chickey fan club.  Desert Foxes baby!

Some day the whole team will eat a purple pickled egg out of Elliot’s used Chinese takeout box with mashed cabbage burrito in it or whatever the hell that was.

The look on Gus’ face when he got a whiff was priceless.

Graham awaits.   –Leo

From Rick E.

“I think I’m finally burned out.  This was my worst hill climb ever!  I repeatedly had to get my speed up to 10-11 and then after a while I’d realize the pain was gone and look at the computer which now read 8.”  – highlights seemed to be on the downhill for Rick.  We need a downhill TT!

From Doug P.

Just wish my time was only 3-4 minutes slower than last year! It was 10 minutes slower!! Think it was a combination of the wind, not being use to this altitude (came back late Wednesday night from sea level PA), not use to climbing mountains (PA has lots of hills, but no mountains), and probably most important .. not use to working that hard! Time for me to get in shape!

From the wolf dressed in sheep clothing, aka Elijet – “…day of pain and wind”

 

Rick, Doug, Leo and Gus were out today for the team, Elliot in his cheezy new red/white/blue outfit that Rick pointed out as, “uuhhhhh…not quite as good, Elliot.”
Nasty head wind, slower times, pain, and Leo’s beet purple pickled eggs to top it off post race.
The times were about 3-4 minutes slower than last year (David Glick won at about 54 mins, Darien 54mins 14 secs, and i had about 1:04 – 1:05, which without wind beat last years time (of about 1:02) I belive by a little.  Nathan Franke (5th or so in 3’s state RR this year) was my marked man, but he got around 1:02, bummer, so I’m gonna have to have some EPO eggs to beat him, and John Cavner (57 today!) in AZ State Hill climb, which I’m feeling is going to be harder than I’ve lead myself to believe…
