    Just wanted to mention I set a new 'unfaired recumbent' record at the Dover TT in Dover, MA last night. I used a completely stock Vendetta V20. Tires are 28mm Conti GP4ksii.

    This one is a little hilly for a short TT @ 7.7 miles and 400 ft of climbing. My official time is: 18:35.45
    24.85 mph

    Here's the Strava

    Here's the record results, doesn't look like they updated it so the old 2003 record is listed.

    Still not as fast as the top df times but I was proud of myself for being competitive again so soon after my accident. Many of the other racers were very interested in the Vendetta and were surprised at my performance for a hilly TT. Maybe with lots more training and some upgrades I can bring that time down next year. I wish I had more events near me that allow recumbents to compete. Struggling to find others...
    I guess it's time to update my profile pic :)

    Nice one! They don't allow you to race with them because they are bad losers.
