40K championship

Hey Folks,

So. Lets try the Sanford route. Meet up at the public school in Sanford and we will go from there. See you tonight.

Not sure where to park yet.

We would do this lap 2x for nearly exactly 40k.

I think it would be hard to do a 40K near our normal spot because of the road construction. This would be a nice change as well.

I will plan on going out to ride it next week to see what it is like.

Any ideas, please let me hear them.

TNTT 15K (but really 12.5K) championship results, Ficko wins

Gold: Ficko
Silver: Petrovski
Bronze: E.Veal

We had an amazing turnout Thursday night for our 15km championship TT. 26 riders made it out tonight to try and take home the gold. The course had to be re-routed and shortened a bit but that didn't stop anyone from giving their all trying to take the title. With a north wind pushing the field home to the finish it was an extremely fast night with little or no places to make up time. If you didn't hammer the uphill start you would need to push more than a 58 tooth front chain ring to keep up with our winner. With the provincial TT only 2 weeks away, Darko Ficko came out tonight and showed everyone he is in fine form and ready to rip the heavy weight belt from around Ryan Roth's waist.

Gold goes to Darko Ficko with a 48.6 avg speed on the 12.5 km course and a time of 15.26. Silver goes to IIija Petrovski with a 48.3 km avg and a time of 15:31 and the bronze goes to Ed Veal with an average speed of 48kms an hour and 12 seconds behind with a time of 15:38. Bryan Wolfe had the fastest 15km TT of the entire season and has a medal to prove it but..... was 5 seconds off the podium tonight! Oh ya.....check out Merrill's time too, I see a few provincial golds in this line up!!

Congratulations guys and good luck at the provincial TT!!

LaBiciSquadra C.C and Midweek C.C Presents the Thursday Night Time Trial (TNTT)

Tonight was as beautiful a night as we have had all year. We had 20 riders turnout to test themselves against the GTA`s best. The wind was slightly out of the south which is perfect for this Stouffville course. The problem was that there was dirt and sand from construction on one of the corners that took away from the perfect conditions. Thanks to everyone for taking it easy and not putting themselves in harms way, even with having to take it a bit easier Ilija Petrovski (Wheels of Bloor) went under the 20 minute mark posting a very solid 19:50 to take the win tonight. We had a few new faces out tonight and two of them got into the top 5, congrats to David Pierce (5th) with a 21:43 and Ryan Hodgkinson (4th) with a 21:40. Both these guys were flying their Bikesports team colors with pride making Tom back at the shop very proud!! Great job everyone!!
