We weren't last!

According to the posted results, we came in 28th out of the 35 finishing riders. We were the only mens' 2-man team to enter, which makes the comparison rather unfair to the 26 riders that beat us without the use of a teammate, but it also means that we finished first in the mens' 2-man TT competition. From now on, whenever someone asks how that race went, I'll reply, "first place."

Christine Thorburn, who started just before us, finished six-and-a-half minutes faster in second place with a time of 22:55. The winning time was 22:22. As comical as it was to start behind an olympian, I now realize it's better than starting a minute in front and getting passed within the first mile.
