The ATTA website seems to be back up again, but the results aren't up yet.

They've sent the Race Report and Results in an email to all competitors - but I can't work out how to post the results up here - so just the race report will have to do for the moment.
ATTA Race Report wrote:Lancefield Team/Individual Time Trial
8th July 2007
The forecast of 7 degrees and gale force south-easterly’s didn't deter a record 91 riders coming out to the Lancefield time trial
In the 60km teams event, there were 13 teams contesting the tough undulating 2 lap circuit. Pre race favourites Team Kitty Litter were worried after the late loss of Scotty "Always the Bridesmaid" McDowell (get well soon Scott), but luckily, Australian Olympic Deaf Representative Reese Emerson Van Beek was there to step in, and the Kittens cruised to victory in 1:32:47. Impressing in second place was The Kings Men, 24 seconds ahead of triathletes Team Beazley, who won the 'Battle of the Triathletes.'
In the individual 60km division, the race was dominated by Tri-bal triathlon club, with Shane Friend taking the victory in 1:36:25 - a time, which would have placed him 4th in the Teams division. Rounding out the podium was Peter Lockyer and Ben Carroll. Elly Franks rode impressively to be the leading lady.
Only 6 teams chose to race the shorter 30km distance, and Andrew Ward & Rachel Rayner recorded the only PB on the day, bettering their time from the last Lancefield TT by just over 2 minutes, to take first place 2 seconds clear of promising young cyclists Stuart Grimsey and Oliver Phillips.
Finally, in the 30km individual class, Alex Randall breezed to victory in 46:01. His mother Liz once again took first women. Penny unfortunately didn't manage to beat her last time recorded in April - but given the conditions, she rode a great time trial.
The good deed of the day went to Irene Degenis, who stopped and assisted Scott Logan (Team TE) who punctured with 10km remaining, leaving the team with only 2 members from the original 4.
And the record for the coldest body temperatures’ of the day goes to our helpers, who without their assistance, ATTA could not go ahead. Corner Marshals - Les, Pappas, Sonja, Mark and Dan. Time Keepers - Bruce and Mary and Andy Sleeman (Tribal coach) for his assistance at the finish.
Lastly, thank you to the Mad Gallery Café who provided the warmth and great food during the presentations and registration.
Forecast of gale force south-easterly = no wonder it was so windy on the course! I found Dons Road in particular to be extremely hard.
I noticed that Reece got a mention in the "Team Kitty Litter" win report (cos he filled in on the day when the Kitten pounced on us as we walked in to register) ... as did I, despite not beating my time from last time.
At least I'm steadily improving - even if there wasn't evidence time-wise yesterday. As Dave said, a few months ago, I wouldn't have raced in those windy conditions - but yesterday I was prepared to (admittedly only because it was an individual TT for me!)
