    Comparison.. my 20K time trial

    my first 20K time trail and i did it in 0:35:36
    it was really windy that day also!
    we placed 6th in the Duathlon

    how is the time for a heavy beginner?

    That's an excellent time! Was that a true time trial? A time trial is strictly a race against the clock with no drafting or pacing allowed. You ride alone throughout the entire distance. If it was a team trial it's different. The only reason I asked is because there are 3 riders bunched together & in an individual time trial that would be a DQ.
    Before you criticize someone walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them you'll be a mile away & you'll have their shoes.

    thanks!!

    it was a Relay duathlon and no Drafting was allowed.. so yes it was a individual time trail we where that close together becuase i was passing the guy in front and the guy behind me is trying to pass me.. that was the first lap of the 3


    the guy behind me (skeleton jersey ) passed me but we stayed together the whole race but we did not draft.. we could get disqualified for drafting

    he was like 10 mili seconds faster than me


    i remember we got a warning for being so close at that time in the race..

    NIce effort, and mind the race commissars. Had one a few weeks ago, no warnings, just handed out DQ's.

    Nice man. I need to find one of these to do. I'm always hitting the flats and downhills hard on group rides and it'd be nice to have some sort of actual time to put towards my efforts.
