This past weekend we had the Arizona Team Trial Championships that was put on by the good folks of the Southwest Hand Cycling Team. Since I am a triathlete at heart it is always good to get out and do time trials with the roadies because they are playing in my space, not to mention the fact that in a TTT you are expected to be in a pack in your aerobars! The TTT is a fun discipline because you start with four people and your finish time is taken by on the time of the third person. This means you are able to lose a team member and still get an official finish. Also, in the team competition you are very limited by the weaker riders on the team because you can’t exactly shell them off the back so you need to work a bit harder (taking longer pulls at the front) to keep the team intact as long as possible.
The TriSports.com contingent was super strong at this event – we had 7 teams (6 of them from the TriSports Cycling Club and Team and one team of all triathletes). Our two women’s teams took the top two spots on the podium while our best men’s team took 3rd. It was awesome to see all of the red, white and blue out there on the road!
