Club Time Trial #1 – Wed May 18/16

The first TT of our 4 event time trial series is this week, with first rider starting at 7:00pm!

New for 2016: Due to a road closure on 4th Line, we have moved the Time Trial course one concession west, to 6th Line East. When riding out to the course please allow yourself a few extra minutes, as the course is just over a km further west than in previous years.

Note the schedule for the other events in the series:

  • June 15
  • July 20
  • August 17

Time trials are a great way to test your fitness.  It is a race against yourself and the clock. Riders start at 1 minute intervals and the challenge is to try to catch the rider ahead of you and not to be caught by the rider behind you!  No drafting is allowed.

We use the same course for each of the 4 TT events allowing you to measure your training progression throughout the season.

The course is 16.7km long, an out-and-back route on the rolling hills of Sixth Line East just north of County Road 51 (road to Ariss)

TIPS

  • maintain a steady power output and heart rate throughout the event
  • have a smooth, regular pedalling technique
  • position yourself to be extremely aerodynamic
  • discipline yourself to operate just below your anaerobic threshold until near the end of the course.

REMINDER

  • please exercise caution during the TT, especially at the turn around, as the roads are open and vehicles can be expected

  • please remember to bring your club membership card.

Club Time Trial #4 – Rescheduled – Tuesday Aug 26/14 – 6:30pm

Last week's final TT of the season has been rescheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday Aug 26/14.

Note the start time is 6:30pm (not the usual 7pm). See previous post for details as to location, etc. 

Sorry about conflict with the Tuesday club ride.

RESULTS

The rain from last week was gone, but the hot humid weather that greeted riders made for the warmest TT of the year. A fairly big turnout, including 3 first timers, were hoping the old adage of warm humid temperatures making for fast times would prove to be true. And judging by the results it appears to be.

Six PB times were set, with Derek missing out by a mere 1.16 seconds in breaking his Eddy Merkx course record. A great end to the season's TT series.

  1. Bayden Pritchard      24:41.90       41.30 km/hr    PB
  2. Derek Snider            25:05.12        40.66km/hr
  3. Aaron Prieur             26:02.08       39.18km/hr    PB
  4. Benoit Boulay          26:39.19        38.27km/hr    PB
  5. John Parrott             26:56.56        37.86km/hr    PB
  6. Rob Nespolo            27:35.90        36.96km/hr    PB
  7. Kevin Bodbyl            28:03.53        36.35km/hr    PB

Weather: 27 degrees, humidex 36, partly cloudy, winds W 16km/hr, gusts 29km/hr, humidity 69%
