MIVA 15KM Time Trials – Nanaimo River Road


Peter McCaffery

May 23, 2013, Victoria, BC (ISN) – A good turn out for Thursday nights time trial. The east wind helped with the uphill grind to the turn and the return descent made the wind more bearable.

Steve Crowley surprised himself and a number of others by winning in his best time of 23’00” with Steve Struthers just four seconds back in second place and Hub City Tri Club’s Reagan Lovig 3rd. A further minute back. Other notable rides were Phil Birrer’s personal best in fourth, Dave Steen’s 24′ 45″ for fifth place, and eight year old Ian Gilmore’s forty minute ride. There were two fixies tonight – Patrick Burnham was joined by Russell Berg on his new Fuji.

Thanks to Katy Wallington for computer timing, Kyle Waring for back up timing and holding, and Don Gillmore for marshaling the turn. It’s heartening to see the number of volunteers giving up their rides to help out.
