"Dismal" Dash Time Trial

I think the Dismal Dash was not named for the race being held next to the Great Dismal Swamp but the "dismal" feeling we all felt struggling after the turnaround and having to ride into the head wind.

Before we get into the results, thanks to Chesapeake Cycling Club, especially Jeni V. for getting this race coordinated and making it successful. Thanks to Don and the crew from the AAB shop. Thanks to all the racers who helped out Saturday, got there early to help setup and to work the course after their ride. The O'Briens for their tent/shelter/bagels/goodies. And to Kale Running for their chip timing (paid for by the race sponsors - Tesoro and Bulluka). Last but not least to the Suffolk PD for their time and effort in making this a safe route for all the racers.

In the CAT 5, Steven picked up some BAR points with his 3rd place finish (1:05:33) with Joe, Rob and Mr. B in the top 15 also picking up points.

CAT 4 had Mike Lirette in at 14 and Mitch finished 24. Amos and Shawn right behind him at 29 and 30, respectively.

Good job to all that suffered thru the 40km, especially kilometers 21 thru 40.
