This past weekend, the current national champion, Gary Painter, traveled to Sattley California to demonstrate his national level supremacy in the time trial and set a new national record in the discipline as a result. Sattley was the site of the Northern CA/NV District road championships and a mecca for time trialists from around the country to lay down fast times. The course is pan flat and at an elevation of 5000 ft is perfect for fast times despite the low oxygen availability. Gary paced his effort perfectly and laid down a blistering 50:59, which set the new record for 40 km TT in the 55+ age group. This was a great indication that his preparation is on track for his run at the World Championships in the TT come August in Slovenia.
