USA Cycling Elite National TT Championships

Jonathan Jacob (NUVO Culture Trail) won the Elite TT Nationals today. Jonathan is not a Bloomington resident, but lives close by in Evansville. Greg Strock (Texas Roadhouse) of Martinsville was 7th and Erik Hamilton (Panther p/b Competitive Cyclist) had a solid finish too with 13th place. In the U23 event, Adam Leibovitz (Texas Roadhouse) placed 8th and Rob Bush (Chipotle Development Team) came in 13th. Bloomington native Isaiah Newkirk (Herring Gas Cycling) slotted in 50th. Looks like guys from Southern Indiana (and KY) are pretty good time trialists!

Great rides all around!
However lucky JJ isn't U23 or he would have come 4th! It's amazing Leibo 'only' came 8th when he's been doing sub-50min 40k TTs. Them's some fast young lads out there!
Shame that the Shanahammer didn't make the trip and put 3 Forest TTers in the top 15. That would make it a true breeding ground of excellence!

All the 40k s Leibovitz has done have been short. The one in Ohio was over a mile short, more like 51 min 40k. Still fast but not amazingly so.

Leibovitz did a 40k in 48:44 up in Kokomo (http://bit.ly/jQh83g). And that course is an actual 40km (by comparison Greg Strock did a 51:57 one month later).

I agree w/ Kaleb. A 48:44 in Kokomo is insane. I think the longstanding record before that was around 50:59.
