Hello, I am doing a 20K Time Trial this weekend and I'm entering Cat5's. What do you think would be some good times in a cat5 20 k time trial? Thanks

There is a very popular 20K TT in San Diego. For results go here:

I always kind of chuckle when people compare times of TTs or really any rides. The slighest differences in grade and course make up significant time differences leaving them really uncomparable in my opinion, timewise. How about wind? That alone can render the same course incomparable on two different days.

For comparison purposes if you insist, there is some race practice that I do here sometimes twice weekly. We hold a 31mph+ AVG. for 10, 3.2 mile somewhat flat laps. That avg. goes higher if a certain well known team brings their damn training motorcycle. These are mostly 2s and 3s at the front with 4s barely hangin' and most 5s likely being dropped midway and slowing to a 27 mph avg for finishing out 8 or 9 laps.

Last night I did a 10 mile out and back training time trial. It was windy. I averaged 29 mph one direction and 23 mph over all. Wind makes a huge difference. When it's calm, I average around 25.

Don't know how old you are, but why are doing the 5's in the a State Championship TT rather than your age group? Last year at the same race/same course the JR winner averaged 27.5mph. Also be sure to register today because there is no race day registration allowed.

Good Luck!
