35 count’em 35 riders hit the road for a record breaking, PR smashing TT last night, with 14 riders setting PR’s. Starting off in the 40k, Kyle May continues to lead the 2 lap field with a time of 58:50 @ 25.29mph. Chad Pond rode a debut 40k with a time of 1:04:39 @ 23.02mph. Chad was one of the original TT riders in 2004, but moved out of state the next year. It was great to see him back at the Homestead. Andrew Young knocked over a minute off his recent 40k PR, riding to a 1:07:45 @ 21.96mph.
Last night was First Mid Illinois Bank & Trust night, or FMIBTN for short. Eric McRae brought out a plethora of goodies, with the big prizes being two $50 savings bonds. Those went to Chris Sprock and Scott Broyles. Roy Tsuda also donated a case of Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant to the assembled horde, but said that he was not implying anything in doing so. Yeah, we get the point doc.
Finally, David Fathauer was on the Mt. Auburn blacktop taking pictures last night, and pending his approval, Kyle will have these shots up on the Spin City site in the near future.
Thanks to our timers, Helene, Sharron, and Melinda, and thanks to YOU for supporting the TT series.
