Full Moo Ironman triathlete Mike Skillings rode the Maldon & District CC 50 mile time trial last weekend. Here's his race report. "This was my first 50 mile time trial. The winds were light... no excuses there then! Transiting to the start I managed to miss a turn, so ended up doing a couple of extra miles warm-up... which actually (ultimately) made me feel more prepared. We'd come up with a power level to maintain for the first hour, then a plan to go by feel for the second, plus any extra minutes required(!) The recurring thought I had was “get more aero”, thus ending up with the feed tube of my Giant Trinity nearly up my nose! Another steep learning curve is that, as a long time trial progresses you may feel you are pushing harder, but actually your wattage is likely to be declining due to the onset of fatigue - even with the perceived effort being greater. Results? An overall finish time of 2hr 17mins 31secs. Or approx 21.8mph."

WTF ride at Sunderbruch Trail Park in Davenport IA 😠 The trails look amazing, I got to go a 1/4 mile when my rear derailleur hit something and bent into my wheel. I found a local shop and bought the tools and parts needed only to get back to the trail head and realize my hanger was also broken. No dice today but I will be back!! #ninerbikes #jeeplife #trailtime #singletrack #cyclocross #cyclinglife #gorideabike #outdoors #sunderbruch #ilovetoride #bikesarelife
