Time trial follow-up...

Smoke is now shooting out of my ears as I look at the time trial results today and read that there were 18 no-shows today. That means I had 18 chances to race today, but I was told "sorry" instead this morning.

Now, I know that this is an event run by volunteers who may have received conflicting instructions, so I'm not going to get too bent out of shape. On top of it, I had a great day with my family, so I didn't exactly "lose" anything...

But I have to admit that it kind of ticks me off when I have spent the past few weeks training for the race (and I should have preregistered, I know). I just hope that the remaining races in the year go much smoother.

Sounds like you had a priceless moment with your family to make up for any lost TT.

You can always go out and set your own best time.

Anonymous; You are right. For the moment of aggrivation felt dealing with the race issue, I got to have a wonderful day with family. There will be more races to race, even this year still.

In the end, the trade was worthwhile.
