VOS Time Trial 2013 : Team Aggress!

VOS Time Trial 2013

This 3 day stage race – biggest one in Arizona – starts with a 14.4 mile Time Trial. I’ve done this race two other times in 2009 and 2011. The M65+ had a good field of ten riders, three of which have consistently finished in the top 5 nationally – Ken Louder from Utah (his son Jeff Louder is a pro), Richard Shields from California and Franz Hammer (32 time national champ) from Arizona. I had a good outing this time, the quick details and the data follow:

2013 VOS TT; 3rd place M65+, 35:48, 24.1mph ave. Outbound 21.3mph, 151 HR, 67 cadence, 20:19; Return 27.8mph, 154 HR, 73 cadence; 15:29; 12 seconds out of second behind Jack Dillon; Ken Louder all alone in first. About 8-9 mph headwind going out. Coming back it was a tailwind, but changed back/forth to a crosswind. Pleased with this effort today … wanted to average >24 mph, and averaged 24.1mph – best I’ve ever done in a TT (except the downhill Sonoita Patagonia). Took 2 minutes off my previous best time in this race back in 2011.

    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.
