As Chris and I set up the course at 3:45pm the sun peeked out of the clouds and a slight but noticeable wind was beginning to pick up. By 4:45 when we rode the course, there were some very looming dark clouds to the north west, but it was still a distance away, not really a worry. By the time we finished our ride, which was 5:15, there were sheets of gray vertically coming out of those same clouds in the distant horizon.
We only had 14 racers participate in my second time trial. As they came to the registration table I heard stories of massive downpours, tree limbs in the road and people driving with their warning flashers on on the expressway. It never rained in Lone Tree.
Results for those with the good faith to show up. Thanks.
