May 10, 2016 Time Trial Results

The first of the 2016 Time Trial series races was held in Reynolds Illinois on May 10th. Rain had threatened all day so it was uncertain if the race would be held. By race time the skies had cleared and the contestants arrived and began their pre-race preparations. Eleven competitors joined the fray in what is known as the race of truth. Why that description? because in a time trial you have no partners, you cannot draft off another rider or vehicle and your results are based solely on your own efforts.

We saw some awesome effort from all the riders. Best time on the course came from Brian Hohensee with 32:22 . First time competitor (in any race) Nancy McDonald had a very impressive time of 38:10. Terry Burke proved that 76 years of experience couldn't stop him from showing the youngsters how it's done. Thanks to Janette Harrington to helping with timing the event.

Our next race will be held at West Lake park, Davenport on June 14th. Registration is 5:45- 6:15 and the first rider is starts at 6:30 The course is an out and back on 110th St. You are welcome to come out and try the course or cheer on the racers.
