The time trials were my favorite event. The speed these guys were coming in at the finish line were impressive to say the least. This course TT event was 5 miles long with a lot of very big hills.(the most hilly area I have ever seen in Florida, reminded me more of the Carolina's than the flats we are used to seeing here.) We got to see one of the cyclist break the course record on this day, with a time of 8 minutes and 40s seconds. Don't remember the exact number, but he had an average speed of 32 mph in some steep hills too! He was riding a Shiv. It was fun and I'm definantly going to many more races in the future, I'm hooked.
