Another BIG moment in the crossroads time trial history: The course record has been broken again! By the same guy! Mat Davis is…so far…the only human being to go under fifteen minutes on the 7.35 mile course and he’s done it three times. Wednesday was the fastest of those three. See the list below. Mat actually had two starts: On the first one he flatted just 100 meters from the start line and went back to fix it. We finally started him about 28 minutes after the first rider had been sent off.

Josh Hudson came awful darn close. He just needs to find six seconds somewhere. If it means anything he said he didn’t feel all that fast when he started. Guess he just needed the warmup.

Weather was about 94 degrees with variable winds and bright sun. Oh, and humid.

The usual appreciative thanks to Mike Cook for timing and holding, Tim Fitzgerald for holding, and Scott Rothell for working the turnaround. It’s nice to have the help! Welcome to Sam LeBlanc and Kylie Etienne who came up from Baton Rouge to participate…glad to have you!
