Friday, August 21, 2009 - Race ReportsA little Karma can go a long way. Yesterday Morgan saved a hummingbird and then Ben helped a stranded cyclist on our morning ride today. This evening Tom Zirbel surprised even himself with a win in the Tour of Utah stage 3 time trial.
It was a 9.1 mile course on and around the Miller Motor Speedway. The weather called for extreme heat but luckily they were wrong, it was very manageable.
I rolled it pretty conservatively in 18:10 and I got a little love from the announcer as I crossed the line. He said something about having a good early season and then getting Mono. Yeah, I didn't know I had Mono either, but it's a good excuse.
Overall, Bissell finally had a good day. Tom 1st, Jeremey 4th and Ben 6th. Tomorrow is the queen stage, we'll see if the legs come around for it.
