Club Time Trial #4 – Rescheduled – Tuesday Aug 26/14 – 6:30pm

Last week's final TT of the season has been rescheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday Aug 26/14.

Note the start time is 6:30pm (not the usual 7pm). See previous post for details as to location, etc. 

Sorry about conflict with the Tuesday club ride.


The rain from last week was gone, but the hot humid weather that greeted riders made for the warmest TT of the year. A fairly big turnout, including 3 first timers, were hoping the old adage of warm humid temperatures making for fast times would prove to be true. And judging by the results it appears to be.

Six PB times were set, with Derek missing out by a mere 1.16 seconds in breaking his Eddy Merkx course record. A great end to the season's TT series.

  1. Bayden Pritchard      24:41.90       41.30 km/hr    PB
  2. Derek Snider            25:05.12        40.66km/hr
  3. Aaron Prieur             26:02.08       39.18km/hr    PB
  4. Benoit Boulay          26:39.19        38.27km/hr    PB
  5. John Parrott             26:56.56        37.86km/hr    PB
  6. Rob Nespolo            27:35.90        36.96km/hr    PB
  7. Kevin Bodbyl            28:03.53        36.35km/hr    PB

Weather: 27 degrees, humidex 36, partly cloudy, winds W 16km/hr, gusts 29km/hr, humidity 69%


  1. Conditions are perfect for a new course record. Doing the math, on a flat 14km course at an air temperature of 29 degrees with 65% percent humidity, a 70kg rider peaking for an “A” race on a TT bike wearing full aero rig should go 48.6km per hour.
    The math is based on an 80kg master C rider on a 40km course at 25 degrees, low humidity, on a non aero bike in the Eddy Merckx position (but wearing shoe covers!) doing 39.6kph. So close to 40!
    Go Ryan.

  2. That doesn’t sound like someone intent on improving their time. 🙂
    Only tHose prepared To suffer will be successFul in the qUest for faster speed.

  3. Gah, almost 40 degrees w/ humidity… I think I’ll leave the TT helmet at home.
