Results: RASC Roadies VS. TriGeeks Smackdown! Challenge

Mark Carey, head honcho of the newly formed TriRochester, a spin-off group of VeloRochester sponsored by Rochester Cycling & Fitness, organized the 1st annual RASC Roadies vs. Triathletes Smackdown! Challenge. The top 5 road times were added together, and the top 5 TriGeek times were added together. The lowest time overall wins the Smackdown! Challenge. A total of 30 riders turned out for the this event to battle the fairly tough 14 mile course that hits you with crosswinds off the farmlands and several rollers. Of the thirty riders representing a handful of MN cycling teams/clubs, 16 declared themselves TriAthletes, 14 Roadies. I am happy to report that the roadies times came in 2 minutes 50 seconds faster than the TriGeeks. All riders were allowed to use TT bikes or any aero modifications they wanted to fashion. The only aero mod I have are some clip on mini bars. I think they helped as I shaved a 1:31 off my best time on that course (2006).
