Long Time Trial Results
A record number of riders came out for the Long Time Trial tonight--it's great to see new faces, so thanks to everyone for riding/spreading the word. John J. and Charles D. even contested this thing on a tandem, which was really cool to see. In all, 10 showed up for what became an almost comical test of putting one pedal in front of the other. At least for the first 9 miles, riders spun their way into a wall of wind. I think it was something like 8-10mph out of the NW, but really it's safe to say that we all rode straight into an extended series of microbursts. After the turnaround, tailwinds felt pretty good. Nice riding, all. Jeff Litchfield was cranking into the wind, followed by the tandem rocket. It looks like it got fairly close, but he held them off:
1) Jeff Litchfield 47:08 23.93mph 8 points
2) Tandem: John Jurczynski, Charles Dona 48:18 23.35mph wins tandem cat.
3) Andy Havey 52:53 21.32mph 7 points
4) Armand Girouard 53:01 21.27mph 6 points
5) Jordan Greenberg 54:34 20.67mph 5 points
6) Ted McCahan 55:44 20.23mph 4 points
7) Ed Giunta 57:00 19.78mph 3 points
8) Ryanne Carmichael 58:44 19.20mph 2 points
9) Kelsie 59:54 18.83mph 1 point
