The Geezer 3 MI. Qualifier(2 posts)

Since everybody's been posting 3 mi. TT times, I just had to go see what mine is these days. Hadn't done one since last year. So here goes...at the end of a sprint workout...no wind...flat course... no aerobars: 7:32.

Since this won't qualify me for the Tour, here's the deal. Old folks only need compare their times. This is an age standard for the gerontology set. Young guys (under 50) and Lonefrontranger/Rollo Tomassi types, your minimum qualifying standard is 7:00 flat or less!

By the way, does anyone have an idea what a Cat 2,3 time would be? My guess, around 6:00 to 6:30.

Yeah, I would agree that an average Cat 2/3 should come in 6'0" to 6'30" basically 28 to 30 mph average, especially if its truly flat.
