Although the temps were high for Saturday’s time trial, the winds were minimal. As a result, all OVC racers set personal bests for the 40k course. Bob Lockwood entered the 55+ and finished in 1 hr 21 min for his first MABRA TT. Frankie almost cracked the hour on a road bike with a stellar 1 hr 17 sec (good for 9th of 18 in the Cat 4s). Sean came in at 58 min 26 sec, claiming 6th in the Cat 4s. Roscoe’s 57 min 9 sec effort was only good for 7th of 10 in the Cat 3s, but Mark’s 54 min 14 sec performance was worth a podium appearance -- 2nd place with an average speed of 27.4 mph! Great work, Mark!
Special thanks to our skeleton volunteer crew of Jim V., Alex, Caleb, and Holly. Their help and the help of everyone who has volunteered in the past is greatly appreciated. However, we are going to need more club-wide support if we plan to continue our involvement in this event. Any ideas for increasing volunteer participation are welcome.
