A Race Against Time TT

Well, the first 10K of this 20K were great for everyone. About an 8-10mph tail wind, cloudy skies, temps in the high 50’s, smooth road … then, we all had to turn around and get back to the finish. The head wind was brutal! Really brutal! For example, going out I averaged 29.2mph … yeah! Coming back I struggled to see a number starting with a “2” … I averaged a dismal 19.7mph … UGH! I was really hoping to break 30 minutes since I did the course on Wednesday (with low winds) in about 30:15, but today could only manage 31:19. Disappointing, but something to build on.

We had three Aggressors out today and this is how we finished:
Gus Amado 29:54, 24.88mph, 7/10, M40+
Doug Perry, 31:19, 23.76mph, 4/10, M65+
Rick Ellwanger 31:59, 23.26mph, 6/10, M65+

    Aggress is a Tucson-based statewide / regional cycling team formed in January, 2004.
    As a developmental team for both road and mountain bike racing, Aggress continues to actively – yet carefully – recruit according to a philosophy that emphasizes teamwork in both training and racing tactics.
    Our focus is to race as a team, utilizing team tactics to get our man the win. We ride in support of our designated racer, with each member in turn supported in the key event(s) of his choosing.
    We are aggressive when we race, but we behave in a courteous and sportsmanlike manner at all times. We also have team training rides that we utilize throughout the season.
