USA Professional Time Trial Championships

The US contingent of the Orange & Black competed this weekend at the 2015 Volkswagen USA Cycling Professional Time Trial Championships in Chattanooga, TN. Three riders finished in the top ten, including the team’s go-to time trialist Tom Zirbel, who placed 4th, missing the podium by 43 seconds. Scott Zwizanski and Alison Tetrick both finished 10th. The double-out-and-back, 31km course sported wide roads, some twists and turns, and steady power climbs. A strong wind began soon after the first wave or riders left the gate and steadily increased throughout the day, making the course much harder for later starters like Zirbel and Zwizanski.
