Getting it done at Historic Brooks!

Double podium for Team Smyrna Bicycles this weekend at the Historic Brooks race weekend!  Tom Butler took 3rd in the Master 45+ Time Trial, while I took 2nd in the Cat 5 TT.  Tom destroyed the course, averaging 25.1 mph and gained the nickname “The Hammer.”  The weather was fantastic and was welcomed after the frigid and windy conditions we experienced at the Tundra Time Trial.

Both Tom and I entered our respective Circuit races with tired legs, but that combined with some shaky racers, wrecks and 900 watt sprints out of every corner, our plans quickly changed to simply finish with the group upright.  The average speed of the Cat 5 Circuit’s the Cat 4 race and reached 25 mph.  We were dropping riders coming out of every corner, and with riders 4 and 5 abreast, there was no where to go.  It was insane!

Next up… Union City weekend!
