The second Black Dog Time Trial of the season took place on the 21st. What a great night for racing. The temp was warm and there was hardly a wind in the air. That made for perfect conditions as over 160 racers showed up for the event. I had my best race of the season by clocking a 16:28 for the 7 mile course. That was 56 seconds faster than two weeks ago. I moved up a few places too as I took 5th out of 18 in the 50 plus. Among the other Loon State racers were Dan Cleary, John Stamm, Dave Ludwigson, Jim Cullen, Jordan Cullen and Tim Power. Others racing included Dan Casper, Dan and Doug Swanson, Timmer, Aric Hareland, Hollywood, Andy Kruse, Bill Kosfeld, Steve Knowlton and many more.
