Another tough night at the “windfarm” and we had a near record crowd again with 39 participants. We had a great showing of 40k riders with 12 riders going two laps. Two riders went under an hour with Jeff Shroetlin leading the way with a 0:58:45 @ 25.33mph, Kyle May wasn’t far behind with a 0:59:21 @ 25.07mph. Dr. Kristen White was the lone female and posted a respectable 1:11:13 @ 20.89mph. Hopefully next week she can get some more competition for the 40k. In the 20k course, Chris Sprock posted the fastest time with a 0:31:57 @ 23.29mph. In the female race, Denise Ismari posted an impressive 0:34:56 @ 21.30 mph. As far as PR’s, when you feel you have reached your PR please let us know and we can research it to give you a kudo’s. Mike Schmalandt from Orbea came out to test his skills on the 40k course and rode a great time of 1:02:55 @ 23.65 mph. Mike also generously donated the raffle prizes for last night of which we had plenty of winners. I wanted to point out some of the new faces that have come out to support the TT in the past couple of weeks; Rick Scholl, Sean Higgins, Marsha Cordts, John Zeirke, Jessica Zierke, Troy Roenfranz, Heather Sweet, Blaise Carie, Matt Martin, Ben Schneller ,and Roy Riley. It’s good to see some new faces in the crowd.
It was reported that everyone did a much better job of staying to the right of the road but we still have a little more work to do.
We feel reading off the order at the parking lot and starting both distances worked out much better. Hopefully everyone appreciates the time and effort our timers put into making this work every week because they really do work hard. Thanks again to the timers and thanks to you for supporting the DTTS.
