Another great night for the MIVA time trial series, and another great turnout! A total of 15 riders came out to ride the 40km course tonight, with some (Chris Wilberg) even coming from the mainland just to ride the TT. That bodes well for future attendance this year as the well established MIVA TT Series is attracting riders from all over. After 4 races in 2013, we have had 67 racers out already. At the same time last year, we had 35 racers out. A 91% increase already, with many regulars who haven’t missed a race yet.
The youth race was a 20km and was well attended by regulars Abigail Hare, Ian Gilmore, and Aiden Hare. All 3 rode hard on the challenging course, and Aiden put down an amazing time of 46:53, shaving over a full minute off of last weeks time!
The female division was won by Rose Houle in 1:14:10, with 2nd place going to Sarah Davidson, who is fresh off a fast half marathon time and should keep getting faster and faster times as the season rolls on.
In the mens division, Don Gilmore won his 4th consecutive TT of the season with a very fast 58:29 over the 40k distance. Taking 2nd place was Chris Wilberg in 1:05:56, and third place being Reagan Lovig with 1:08:21. Mr.Fixie himself, Patrick Burnham, rode out splits of 34:45/34:46 , BOTH of which were faster than his 20k alone last week, very impressive! The rest of the field all came charging in with solid times, well done Angellos Glaros, Glen Gordon, Paul Callow, John Tillie, Jason Hare, and Mark Weiler.
All of the results can be found HERE via Webscorer. Great stats on there for those of you who want to see your average speed, as well as lap splits!
The winner of the MIVA socks tonight was Patrick Burnham, wear your MIVA kit and you have a good shot at free stuff!
NEXT week’s TT is a 15k, same time, same place.
