 Midweek/LaBiciSquadra's Thursday Night Time Trial

Dense cool air blowing dead south at 11 kph makes it hard to on this course, as the 1.25 laps includes the northbound stretch twice. These were the hard facts last night at the Midweek/LaBiciSquadra's TNTT, as Ed Veal of LaBicicletta/JLindberg won, but did not make his goal of besting his season record.

Maybe our fastest guy's (1st place, Veal, and 2nd place, Jet Fuel Coffee's Peter Morse) legs are a little bit tired after trying in vain to chase down Planet Energy's Ryan Roth at Midweek's 29th Canada Day CHIN picnic criterium race Wednesday. Times seemed a bit slow as nobody recorded their fastest time this year, except Steve Pasquill. Our 3rd place rider, Pasquill, is showing continuing improvement.

Great Job Everyone!
