Our First Team Time Trial

Congrats to Alex, Steven, Xavier and Gianni! They rode a fantastic TTT at the state championships last Sunday. They averaged 23+ mph on the 7.5 mile lead-up to the big hills (a record performance for them). The hills and finish turned into a battle with CCAP's junior development team. At the line they finished on the podium in 3rd just behind the CCAP junior development squad. The team that won was CCAP's junior, travel race team which has years of experience racing. They actually did so well that they beat all the pro men's teams, as well. We are super proud of the boys for almost hanging with these two all-state teams! Of the 18 high school cycling clubs in CT, we were the only school to field a team of 4 strong riders for the TTT. Not bad for their second year together. The best part of the experience was seeing the hours and hours of team training pay off. While they only had to finish with 3 riders at the line, all four boys finished together; a true sign of teamwork and professionalism!
