10K Time Trial Results: September 14th

Our TT season finale wasn’t quite a 10K, measuring closer to 8.2K (5.1 miles) due to our change in venue. On the upside, the new construction in Gardner will give us a very nice road for next year’s races. A good course at DeSoto, riders also got to see some big pumpkins as that area is known for its squash crops. Fall is coming.

Shout out to Craig Henwood of 3-Feet Cycling and Foody’s Restaurant for the prizes for fastest male and female.

Thank you to the riders for making it a fun night. It was a new course for most, presenting an excellent mental challenge prepping for what is usually a very familiar race.

Thank you to Mark Thomas of Localcycling.com for being our holder, Roger Harrison of Lanterne Rouge for supplying the race bibs, and USAC Official Jeff Englert for providing safety signs.

See you next season!

10K TT Change of Venue

10K Time Trial

Our awesome 10K TT course in Gardner is still under some pretty hefty construction to make it even more awesome, so we will “borrow” the DeSoto course for our final race of the year.

Parking is at Riverfest Park just northwest of DeSoto.

Map it: 33440 W 79th St, DeSoto, KS 66018.

See you there!

10K Time Trial

Course graffiti.

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 Results: June 8th

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 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 Time Trial Mini-Clinic covered breathing techniques for racing. With a headwind on the return trip tonight, this technique is especially handy. For more detail, see my article on Pez Cycling News, “Breathplay: Turn Your Breathing Upside Down.”

Riders were also advised on keeping race numbers visible to officials when crossing the finish line. When you wave or sit up, the officials can’t see your number. Simply continue racing across the line so we get your race number and time recorded properly.

Thank you to Mark Thomas for being our holder and to Roger Harrison for supplying the bib numbers.

10K Time Trial: Results for September 10th

We lucked out and escaped the thunderstorm for the final Time Trial of 2015. After results were announced, racers received a mini-clinic on the start sprint, cadence, and bike fitting. There was also a random drawing for prizes.

Many thanks to the racers throughout the season for your hard work, support, and involvement. This season has been especially focused on sharing knowledge and learning from each other.

Thank You to Mark Thomas of LocalCycling.com for being our holder all season, to Roger Harrison of Lanterne Rouge Racing for supplying bib numbers and spray chalk, and to Jeff Englert for providing the safety signs.
