It was a cooker!

Written By on July 13, 2018

It was a hot one last night at the MIVA/Rock City Cycles 40K TT.   With temps in the high 20’s and wind,  hydration was a factor.   Its always tricky to get the pacing right when you are doubling the distance.   Some riders were experiencing muscle cramps and others complained of legs on fire!   We had a guest from Vancouver Christian Hansen who rocked the TT even when he had a flat at the half way point.  Thinking quick he did a wheel change,  got back in the race and came in 2nd with an amazing time.

Despite the heat 2 riders hammered out Personnal Bests:

Congrats to

James Sage
Stephen Mohan

Thanks to Matthys for starting/timing the riders and for providing great music to get us pumped for the race and Steve for manning the turn around.

 

Next week on July 19th MIVA is trying a  20K point to point TT starting at the far end of NRR.  This should be interesting as its mostly downhill….weeeeeeeeeee!  Hope to see you there.
