Thanks guys, I appreciate it a lot :wave
That Finland 1945 born old guy is speed monster, I was faster only 20 seconds and did not catch him to the end. When I saw him on start he looks like 30 years old guy, and having full I mean full TT stuff, including rear disc.
Those are guys who are among fittest guys in their age category on earth for sure, dude is having 67 years 8) respect. Just checked that dude he is qualifying for UCI worlds road races without a cake.

And you must be in top 25% of your age group to qualified.

AG2R guy is damn fast, damn fast, I saw him when doing warm up around town. It was bloody rush hour so to find nice quiet loop for warm up wasn t easy, so he begins with warm up almost 90 minutes before start, and finishing with trainer, his warm up session is over kill for me ;D
And that Ag2r skin suit wasn t look tha bad at all as regular jersey. 

And yes i met again Americans in train, in fact they are all over the place ;D, even more than Bosnians, oh those Balkan trains, I met some very interesting people, and my TT bike was flying along wagon ;D.
And yes I was in some fine company of two young Slovenian girls ;D

    you can spot how wind was strong, but that guy makes me smile and happy :wave he did it 29 seconds faster than me coz that gold skin suit ;D Gold!

    That was first time also for me to use that expensive ramp and beep machine, it was not to steep and it gives you that initial speed, but you must be fast when that guy behind you once let your ass ;D, coz I saw couple of youngsters having trouble or getting sleep while ass guy let them to fly ;D
    You did 40km under hour? :-*

    Which direction is the wind? Towards your place or away?

    And tell Tony to keep off the curry, it causes havoc all around the world.

    My boys are 17 and 12 now...but my brother and family have lived in the same house on Browning for 30+ years...and the best place for growing boys to visit !  We used to get out there at least 2x per year and the whole Tustin area just feels like home.  Great park!  and fond memories of little guys running around there  :D

    They do that where I come from. First sign of cold weather and the frost rips it off like a layer of flapjack. Wrecks your tyres too.

    I am very very happy with result on given situation coz crash just 9 days before, and 4 days off bike.
    Ok I was 6th out of 11th guys in my cat on TT nats,  24min06sec for 15km of very hard TT course, (10 km uphill with strong wind 8)) and I think at golden middle of all masters.
    60 sec after me on ramp was really really big strong guy and I knew it that he gonna pass me, but I held until 13km ;D, and I knew that I am having good result, he ended 2nd with 22min45sec  or so.
    Terrible organization and lot of riders just kept riding on turns toward finish and still 10km to go :o
    I dope 1 hour before :P
    After race I was sitting in support car with Kvasina brother Danijel behind Matija Kvasina, great fan really. Where I was going 30 km Matija was going 40km, I am going 58km/h, he is going 68Km/h, awesome, he did avg about 45Km/h with really steady pace all the time, and lost 10 seconds coz turn guys, idiots.

    Again nice experience and insight how those really fast guys are doing it, Matija almost late on start ;D, he just finished with overkill warm up and jump to the ramp, his HR was for sure too high 8)

    With couple of more extra treshold session which I lost, I would shave couple of more seconds for sure.
    Crap sandwiches and soda at the end :fp
    I am very happy :win :wave
