10K Time Trial 2020 Update

Life Balance Sports 10K TT logo

It’s official, it’s definitive, and it’s extremely disappointing that we will not host a live 10K Time Trial this year. We plan to resume the series in 2021. Thank you all for your support throughout this Covid-19 insanity. Ride your bikes, stay safe, and as Bill and Ted so eloquently stated, “Be excellent to each other.”

10K TT Results: August 8th

Mother Nature showed our time trial some love once again by clearing the rain so we could race. Congratulations to Chris Formen who had tonight’s top time. Another congrats goes to Kypton O’Neal who placed 4th at USA Triathlon Youth & Junior National Championships last week. Scott “The Judge” Sifferman, a frequent 10K TT’er, won the silver medal at USA Cycling’s Masters Road National Championships. Way to go guys!

Thank you to David Anderson for being our holder, Mark Thomas of LocalCycling.com for our race permit, and Roger Harrison of Lanterne Rouge Racing for supplying our bib numbers.

Next race: September 12th

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!
