Bob Raibert competes in Fiesta TT, Eddy Merckx would be proud! (Sept. 9, 2012)

Bob Raibert has done Merckx-style Time Trial (no aerobars, aerohelmets or other aero equipment of any kind) at the Fiesta Island. Bob rode 20K (3 laps around Fiesta) in 30 minutes and 28 seconds.

Below is a brief report from Bob, and some photos of Bob in action.

Good to see you this morning, thanks for keeping an eye on my daugher.
The results were just posted, some fast times in the Eddie Mercx, I ended up 6th place out of 15.  On course I passed 4 guys in my group, a good day, only 1 guy on a full TT bike setup passed me.
My Garmin was not “started” for the first 1.5 laps so will be unable to upload to Strava, bummer.
My goal was to beat my time from last year but thought I was off by 30 seconds.  My posted time was 30:28, a 24.5 mph average!  This is 30 seconds faster than last November with the aero bars and aero helmet.  So a successful morning afterall. 
Add the aero bars and TT helmet and then and hope to break the 30 minute barrier in November.
Now on to do some hill climbing, hopefully later today and put the skinsuit aside for a while!
