It was a cooker!
It was a hot one last night at the MIVA/Rock City Cycles 40K TT. With temps in the high 20's and wind, hydration was a factor. Its always tricky to get the pacing right when you are doubling the distance. Some riders were experiencing muscle cramps and others complained of legs on fire! We had a guest from Vancouver Christian Hansen who rocked the TT even when he had a flat at the half way point. Thinking quick he did a wheel change, got back in the race and came in 2nd with an amazing time.
Despite the heat 2 riders hammered out Personnal Bests:
James Sage Stephen Mohan
Winner of the MIVA socks for estimating the closest to their actual time was Jamie Ollson. She was only 4 seconds off!!
Top 3 men:
James Sage 58:23
Christian Hansen 1:01:03
Stephen Mohan 1:06:03
Top 2 women:
Lorrie Baildham 1:09:07
Jamie Ollson 1:14:34

Thanks to Matthys for starting/timing the riders and for providing great music to get us pumped for the race and Steve for manning the turn around.
Next week on July 19th MIVA is trying a 20K point to point TT starting at the far end of NRR. This should be interesting as its mostly downhill....weeeeeeeeeee! Hope to see you there.
