Conquer the Canal Time Trial

Women's Cat 4 - Michelle Neff 

At the starting line the official decided to do things "old school" and lined us up one minute apart. Since there were a couple of no-shows, I had two minutes between my start time and the rider ahead of me and two minutes until the rider behind me started.

Truly an individual effort.

I caught the rider who started before me and passed her just before the turn-around. I kept expecting last year's winner or another rider to catch me at some point on the course but no one ever did.

We had to leave shortly after the race, before the results were complete. I had no clue that I won until Pete Swan emailed me this morning congratulating me and telling me I should get a TT bike.
