10K Time Trial Results: August 9th

A lot going on at tonight’s time trial from wind and weather changing about every two minutes to various mechanical issues with the bikes. Craig flatted just before the turnaround and Ray threw a chain. On the upside, Lisa Doane and Wes Boyce earned gift cards donated by Foody’s for fastest times, and Mike Smithmier for his awesome comeback. Thank you to Craig Henwood and Foody’s for the prizes. Thank you to Bob Ades for being our holder and helping at the finish line.

10K Time Trial Results: July 12

July’s time trial brought out the truly passionate (or questionably sane) as temps were 100+ on the course at start time. Another exciting tie this month had us consulting the decimal points. Mike Harrison edged out Roger Edgar by a ridiculously small fraction of a second.

Racers were treated to prizes from Foody’s, sponsor of 3 Feet Cycling Team. Prizes went to fastest female, male, and junior. Gift card winners were Sarah Davis, Brian Bradley, and Gabe Schmitz. Thank you to Foody’s and Craig Henwood!

Thank you to Stacey Schmitz for being our holder, permit sponsor Mark Thomas of LocalCycling.com, and race bib sponsor Roger Harrison of Lanterne Rouge Racing.

Shout out to 10K “regulars” Andy Brown and Scott Sifferman. We’re all rooting for you both and hope to see you soon!

10K Time Trial Results: June 7th

The sun kicked out the day’s gray skies just as our time trial got underway. We had to drill down to hundredths of a second to break a tie between Sam Swearngin and Craig Henwood. It was Craig by a gnat’s eyelash at .06 ahead. Our sole junior on tonight’s course, Gabe Schmitz, knocked off 2 minutes from last month’s time.

This month’s Mini Clinic focused on beating the heat with tips on nutrition and how to use ice socks.

A few of tonight’s racers are heading to Augusta next week for Masters Road Nationals – Andy Brown, Mike Harrison, and Scott Sifferman. Brian Bradley will be racing Tulsa Tough this Saturday. Best of luck to all of you!

Much appreciation goes out to Mark Thomas at LocalCycling.com for sponsoring the race permit, Stacey Schmitz for being our holder, Gregg Rupp for timing back-up, and Roger Harrison at Lanterne Rouge Racing for providing bib numbers and spray chalk.

Next race: July 12th.

10K Time Trial Results: May 10th

Life Balance Sports 10K TT

A newly surfaced road greeted time trial racers at our season opener. We recruited a new holder so our sponsor could race, Stacey Schmitz did a great job sending riders off at the start. The Mini-Clinic continues with skills and technique you can use to improve your riding.

Remember that you can re-use your race number (and pins) for these races. Chuck Procner brought his bib from last season. Way to recycle, Chuck! Also, you only need one Release Form for the entire season, so if you filled one out last night you’re set for this series. Saving the planet one waiver at a time.

Thank you to Roger Harrison at Lanterne Rouge Racing for providing bib numbers and to race permit sponsor Mark Thomas at LocalCycling.com.

10K Time Trial Results: September 14th

Life Balance Sports 10K TT

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!

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.
