|Tennessee State Time Trial|
Results are now posted at USA Cycling for the Tennessee State Individual Time Trial Championship. Thank you to all our volunteers, officials and racers for making it a success!
We could not have asked for a more beautiful day in Lascassas to host the fastest bicycle racers in Tennessee. The course proved to be very challenging as the wind played a big factor in the wide open countryside of Hwy 96. Only 30 racers out of 152 were able to complete the 40k course with a sub-hour time.
The fastest time clocked was from John Hart of the Friends Great Smokey (FGS) team at 53:27.14. In fact, four out of the top five riders in the Elite Men division were from the FGS squad! In the Elite Women category it was Marda Kaiser Rehnelt of ACCM team in Memphis with a winning time of 1:03:39.68. Jason Tatum of the Bazaarvoice/TriStar squad won the Masters Men division with a time of 56:19.70.
The race was followed by a podium presentation to award the TN State Championship medals. It was exciting to witness the presentation as most of the competitors were there to applaud the winners. Stay tuned to the TBRA website for the medal results to be recognized, and for TBAR Road Series points to be calculated.

Congratulations to everyone who competed in the event. A time trial of this difficulty is no easy task, but you will be a stronger and smarter bike racer because of this experience. We hope you enjoyed the course and had a wonderful experience, and we hope to see you back in Lascassas in 2012. Thanks again for participating!
