TT-TJ Eisenhart wins USA U23 Nationals

I won't attempt to feign surprise to see that TJ Eisenhart won the USA U23 TT Championships in Madison, Wisconsin on Friday. On the day of our 238th anniversary of our divorce with Great Britain, Eisenhart went out like old times and smoked the time trial by 48 seconds on Hincapie Development's Robin Carpenter and 1'09" over Ben Wolfe of Cal Giant. Eisenhart was a TT stud when he was a junior (and went by Timo), where he won the time trial in the Tour de l'Abitibi and placed highly in Pays de Vaud and Trofeo Karlsberg TTs along with a 10th place in junior Worlds.

Last year, his TTing abilities came out in the Thüringen Rundfahrt, where he secured 6th overall after a 7th place in the TT. This year, the Lehi, Utah native hasn't raced many time trials but after winning the Utah State TT last weekend, Eisenhart put in a roaring time on the flat to rolling course. Eisenhart got a pretty good haul at Nationals so far with a 3rd place in the RR and a win in the TT. Robin Carpenter has also had a great Nationals with 4th in the RR and 2nd in the TT.
