The "Top Dog" Time Trial sponsored by Wheel Base Bikes, Raw Revolution, Justin's Nut Butter and of course "Kelley Acres" Speed Shop had close to 70 riders participating this Winter Session.
In the Men's Overall Category Lucas M. of Team Snapple, held his 1 sec.lead over Nate W, member of the US National U23 team and California Giant Cycling Team. This is his 4th consecutive time being "Top Dog". In the Women's Overall it was a true battle of some fast ladies. First Michele T. of the Frederick Tri Club comes out of the blocks early and cracks the 17min. mark to set the standard for the ladies. It was a shop record. Fast Hannah H. runner extraordinare sponsored by Brooks ,was quite motivated at this point and blows out a 16:47. A new shop record. Then there is Princess Cheryl of Team CF. Training for the early season, Absa Cape Epic, Cheryl has been dialing in her form each week and blistered out yet another shop record and became the Overall Women's Champ AND the Women's 40+ Category winner with a time of 16:38. Phew!!...the ladies are really fast this year.
In the Men's 40+ Category, Ray T. of NCVC, saved his best run for last and held on for the win. The Men's 50+ Category was hotly contested this season. Greg L., winner of the last fall's competition was in island mode for the first half of the winter session. Who can blame him, it was dark and cold. Then he decided it was time to get to work and rode a personal best 16:32 and got the heads turning. Curt S. of NCVC decided to pay a visit to the Shop for a go and bested Greg's time by 7 sec. Then along comes Lumpy of AVC. He rides over to the Speed Shop for the last class of the season and conquers the TT to defend his ride from last winter in 16:13. Impressive.
On to the fun Combined 80+ Categories. Riders combined ages must equal 80 or more. Steve W. of ABRT and Ray T. of NCVC took the top spot in the Men's Category in fine fashion over Lucas M. and Curt S. Patty C. and Michele T. of the Frederick Tri Club edged out Vicki B. and Cheryl S. for the Women's Category. Cheryl S. and Ray T. hammered the Mixed Category winning by almost 1 min. My favorite category of all was the Parent/Junior's. New to the TT categories we had a little family feud in play. Mike S. and Nathan C. came out on top over Patty C. and brother Matt C. Great riding by all!!
