MIVA FIFTEEN KILOMETER TIME TRIAL 12/03/04

Posted on: March 4th, 2012 by pakamac No Comments

Sunday’s fifteen kilometer time trial on the Duke Point Highway, Nanaimo,  was pretty hard as there was a strong easterly wind, low temperature and the last kilometer was mostly up the steepest incline on the course. Among the starters were Dave Steen and newcomer Sean Funk who came from Thetis Island , MIVA committee members Janna Gillick and Doug Merrick, and Kim McCarley. Also present but not riding the event were Leigh Blaney and Ross Palfery, MIVA Secretary. Top three finishers were surprisingly close, with Doug Merrick posting the best time of 26 minutes six seconds and Septuagenarian Dave Steen doing a great ride at just 21 seconds behind If the old standard on age criteria had been used, he would have won by over 3 minutes! Janna Gillick was third, and first woman) in just under 27 minutes.

Doug’s computer showed the course to be just over half a kilometer long at 15.53km. So the 15 km finish would have been near the bottom of the final hill and would have resulted in almost two minutes off the times.

The next time trial on The quiet Duke Point Highway will be on Sunday March 18th. , registration at 10.30am and start at 11.01am. The finish will be moved just over half a kilometer down the hill!
