The final BTC time trial was a fast one. Lots of records were set and lots of leaderboard entries obtained. Greg Thomas set the fastest time ever obtained at a Beat the Clock TT in any category, a blistering 18:08, in his fully-wrapped, super-low HPV. Mark King beat his own record by nearly a minute in the Single Speed Aero Men, and didn’t have enough, so he proceeded to set another leaderboard-worthy time in the Single Speed Non-Aero Men category. Kim Wik and Dave Maminski set a new record in the 2MW Mixed Tandem category. The dynamic trio of Cammy DeLuca-Flaherty, MaryAnn Levenson, and Andi Smith beat their own record in the 3W TTT category. The 4-men team of Tom Coulter, Don Langley, Dave Maminski, and Dan Smith set a record in the 4M or more TTT category.
Notable leaderboard entries include Phillip Plath on his high-racer recumbent, Harlan Chapman and Partick Coulson in the 2M TTT Non-Aero category, and Barry Burr in the Utility Bike Men category. And my own evil plan paid off to enlist Ted Huang to tow me around the course to sneak back onto the leaderboard in the 2MW TTT Non_Aero Mixed category. The credit for this feat goes entirely to Ted (though hanging on to an Olympian for dear life isn’t quite as easy as it sounds), thanks!
