With a windy night, we had are largest crowd yet. We were happy to race with 41 hardy souls on the 20k and 40k course. We had 8 people on the 40k course with Jeff Schroetlin leading the pack and taking it easy with a 57:09 @ 26.04mph, that’s right I said taking it easy. Andy Sweet came down from Bloomington and earned a shirt with a 58:42 @ 25.35mph great job Andy. Andrew Young set a new PR for the 40k with a 1:06:39 @ 22.33 mph, great job!! Ed Elliot lead the way on the 20k course with a 29:50 @ 24.94mph. We wish Ed a lot of luck this weekend as he is going to compete in the Ford Ironman Coeur d’ Alene you can go to this website to track his progress http://ironman.com/ironmanlive. Anna Stadler was our fastest female for the night with a 34:02 @ 21.86mph. Great job to all that came out last night.
We need to impress on people the importance of safety at the TT course. With 41 people, we all need to do our part to stay to the right on the road and allow cars to pass us. In a perfect world, cyclists would have their own lane and we could all live in harmony. Unfortunately we do not and we must share the road with motorists. As Kyle said last night, we do not have any formal permission to race out there so we need to work together so we don’t waste a good thing. In the past, the police have been called and accidents have happened. With that said, here are a couple of rules to remember:
A couple of other things, registration starts at 5:15 and closes at 5:50. The first rider leaves at 6:00 pm and yell your number when going over the finish. Thank you to our timers and thanks to you for supporting the DTTS.
The Rodney T. Miller Decatur Triathlon registration closes June 28th. This will be a great event so hurry up and sign-up. There will be no same-day registration.
