Chuck Van Arsdale Time Trial-
June 27, 2007
It looked like rain for last night’s TT, but the storm held off to the north, and we had a very fast night. The wind from the northwest that came through wasn’t very helpful to all of the 40k riders (myself and Stephan Eichenauer), but was a boon to the 20k riders, picking up just as many riders were turning for home. Jeff Schroetlin was the fastest of the one lappers, riding to a 27:04 @ 27.49mph. It was just a matter of time before Mark Jones joined the ranks of the 2007 Sub-30 Club, and last night was the night. Mark finished with a very nice 24:42 @ 25.05mph. Chris Sprock inches closer to joining the very exclusive Sub-30 Club “Road Bike Edition”. His 30:23 @ 24.49mph is another PR. Andrew Young broke the 23mph mark with his ride last night, and set another personal record with a time of 32:03 @ 23.23mph. Clay Sayers set another PR last night with a 32:38 @ 22.80mph. Tom Anderson also set a personal best with a ride of 32:39 @ 22.79mph. Syd McRae was the fastest female, and knocked almost a full minute off of her PR from last week. She rode to a 33:09 @ 22.44mph, missing a berth into the Sub-33 Club by just 9 seconds. Brian Wright set a PR with a time of 33:19 @ 22.33mph. Scott Broyles and Richard Berard also grabbed PR’s with times of 35:05 @ 21.21mph, and 35:11 @ 21.15mph respectively. Ed Raycraft topped the 20mph mark with a personal best ride of 36:40 @ 20.29mph. I believe that this was the first night in the history of the DTTS, with a full field, that everyone in the 20k topped 20mph. Great job to all riders!
