Another fantastic evening for the Rock City Cyles/MIVA TT tonight on Nanaimo River Road. A total of 27 racers hammered it out on 20K course.

Some new faces giving it a go for their first Miva TT – way to go Louis Chapdelaine, Peter Richards, Charlene Manner and Nadia Plomondon.

For the men, James Sage crushed it with a smoking time of 28:47, Elijah Buffalo was 2nd with a time of 29:30, followed by Ian Hay in 30:42.

For the women, Lorrie Baildham was 1 second off her PB with a time of 33:20, Kiyomi Schulz destroyed her previous PB by almost a full minute with a time of 33:55 (it was defintely because the gloves where off) followed by Jamie Ollsen in at 36:00 on the nose.

Check out the full results here.

Shout out to the Volunteers, Steve Ollson for manning the turn around Ed Smythe for holding at the start, helping with sock sales and collecting timing chips at the end.

It’s always so great to see the comeraderie with in the club. Craig Rutherford finished his race and jumped in his truck to go and help out Charlene who had a flat on the course. All this without a second thought. In the mean time, Gary was on the course helping her out and Steve swooped by on the way in and picked her up in his truck. That’s what this club is about, a true team guys. Cheers to that.

Thank you Lorrie for the pictures and the bones and a big thanks to Patrick for dong a terrific job with the timiing and course setup. We are glad you got a ride in after all, Patrick. Please remember to sign up online before the event and put in your estimated time so Patrick can maybe get a TT race in too! The link for sign up will be sent out in the email and put in the FB event.

Please note: Next week’s TT is in Errington on Grafton Road – start time 7:15pm. It’s the week of the Team Time Trial and you don’t need to be on a team to race. If you want to create a team of three, it’s a mix of male and female along with one Merckx style bike.

See you next week!!
