Colavita East Ohio TT

One a Month...and One to Go.

The Colavita East Ohio Time Trial, near Akron Ohio...takes place on a rolling and often raining out and back course!

The August event found Ag3r/FoxVelo riders Steve MarleTTe, Henry Dimmick, Randy McCracken and Donnie Panizales all braving the RAIN and LIGHTNING for a chance to ...get wet!

Warm-Ups on the bike were more like Warm-Ups in the Pool!  We all noticed that our tires were slipping on our trainers; the resistance was light. So we told ourselves we were STRONG like BULL!

After all the others had left for the Start, Henry noticed his resistance go up, and when he took the bike off the trainer for the start, he realized he had worn the rubber off the center of the tire. With no time to spare, he headed for the line.  After the race, while telling the story, they all looked at the tire to see THIS!  Randy commented that it was a good thing the race wasn't (twice) as long!

At the end of the day, we all had won something:
