Race Report: US National Championships in Bend, OR

The Time Trial was slated for Thursday afternoon and my start time was just after 1pm. It was a 35km course with a 10-12km out and back followed by a 10-12 km lollipop loop. The way out was a solid, gradual uphill and the way back in was screaming fast! The loop was hilly, with a few power climbs and exposed to the wind and some super fast sections as well. I lined up a quiet spot under the shade of a tree and grabbed a double espresso before hoping on the trainer. I began my typical warm up, pedaling easy for 20-30 minutes then slowly ramping up the intensity in shorter 1-2 minute intervals with good recovery between. It was definitely a bit warm today, and super dry as usual.

I was able to pre ride the course and check out the two turns that would give me trouble. I found out I was starting at 8:30 pm and planned […]
