Tonight’s 10K TT Canceled

Canceling due to lack of road. It is torn up and down to one lane. Not safe and not a good TT test. Thank you to Jennifer Piko for the photo and letting us know.

This month’s Time Trial was a race against the storm and every rider won. We skedaddled as the last rider came in just ahead of the rain and lightning. Gotta hand it to junior Justin Hizer who raced with two borrowed wheels, flatting both just before race start. Kent Woermann and Mark Thomas came to the rescue with the bottom half of a bike on a few minutes notice.

Thank you to Mark Thomas of LocalCycling.com for being our holder, USAC Official Jeff Englert for supplying the race safety signs, and Roger Harrison of Lanterne Rouge Racing for the bib numbers and a DOZEN CANS of spray chalk to decorate the course.

10K Time Trial

Roadies, cyclocrossers, and triathletes…oh my! Quite a mix of specialties at the time trial course this month.

Time-trialing improves performance across the spectrum of disciplines, so get your TT on no matter your preferred racing style.

Tonight’s mini-clinic covered the importance of properly stabilized feet and the role insoles play in making us fast on the bike. And they keep us healthy!

Pro tip: Not every insole is right for every person. Check out my article on Ironman.com about cycling and running insoles:
“Consider the Insole Before Hitting the Road”

Thank you to everyone who came out to race.

10K Time Trial

Tailwind! Something we’re not used to on this time trial course. Although we’re accustomed to copious amounts of wind in Kansas, someone described tonight’s breeze as “weird.” We like that kind of weird on race night.

Tonight’s mini-clinic covered gear choice for the start line presented by Mark Thomas. Scott Sifferman gave insight on his wind-tunnel experience, and Mike Harrison reminded us to pay attention to pedal stroke technique. Thank you all for sharing your knowledge. Thank you to all the racers for the fun and competition!

Appreciation goes out to Mark Thomas for being our holder, Roger Harrison for the race bib numbers, and Jeff Englert for the safety signs.

10K Time Trial Results: April 13th

10K Time Trial

The season opener Time Trial gave us perfect weather for testing skills. Our races include a mini-clinic each month to cover various skills and tips. Tonight’s topic covered calming techniques to control energy, particularly pre-race.

A few racers competed Merckx style, including our fastest rider of the night, Kyle Sabatini. “Merckx style” means time-trialing on a regular road bike, no aero bars. Way to kick it, Kyle!

Thank you to Mark Thomas for being our holder and race permiter, Roger Harrison for providing the race numbers, and Jeff Englert for providing the safety signs.

10K Time Trial Results: August 11th

10K Time Trial

Tonight’s Time Trial was a proper August heatwave and we had a few mechanicals to boot. Chris Formen was so fast his Garmin couldn’t keep up, so he went back after it when it fell off his bike. Hannah Goldberg blew a shifter but finished in a single gear like the champ she is. Nice work everyone, thanks for making it a fun night.

10K Time Trial

Tonight’s 10K TT produced some nice results thanks to 5-7 mph breeze rather than the usual 17+ with gusts. A very good test for our racers. Teresa and Kathy had a close race tonight while Craig cranked it out Merckx style. We finished up the night with tips on starts and negative splits.

Thank you to the racers, you make this event a great one. Thank you to Mark Thomas for holding and to Roger Harrison for supplying the race bibs.
