MIVA 20km individual time trial, Nanaimo River Road. 120809
Temp.:25 C., sunny, Wind: gentle breeze.
Another fast evening with a number of the participants posting personal best times. The top four riders were all very fast only forty-two seconds separating them.
Then there was a four minute gap until the next fastest but this gap will doubtless get smaller as more riders start to train specifically for time trialling.
Top woman was Janna Gillick, with a sub thirty-three minute ride, just over half a minute outside her best time, placing fifth overall. It was great to see two youth riders – Abigail and Aiden Hare – do their first twenty kilometre t.t., both posting respectable times for their ages.
Thanks to Simon Kubacki for doing a great job as holder, and to the Gilmore kids for counting down to each start in both English and French (adds that Europe flavour)
Next week is a twenty km. Two person team time trial. I suspect that the first two teams may both break twenty-six minutes so come out and cheer everyone on.
