I can waste time on the interweb...this is one of the many ways I do it...
The third annual (I guess it can now be called “annual”) Wawawai Hill climb and TT occured again last Sunday, March 4. The event grew again this year with a total of 81 registrations which was composed of 55 unique riders. Twenty-six of those riders did both of the events. These people are true hard men and women of the sport. Congrats to anyone who did both events, I know that it’s not easy. Actually…I don’t know that since I have never actually raced either event…which may be a sign of my intelligence.
No records fell in the morning’s time trial. The headwind on the way out made sure that would happen. Of course, that same headwind helped the hill climb records fall. Both the women’s record and men’s are new as of the 2012 event. Jodi Bolt (Old Town Bicycle) shattered the previous women’s record with a time of 32:20 (previous record was 35:29) and Jake MacArthur (Keller Rohrback Cycling Team) set the new men’s record with a time of 27:34 (previous record was 28:04). Congrats to both of them.
I’m posting the unoffical GC times here for people who did both races. I’m thinking about adding overall prizes next year to reward people who do both events.
GC by category:
To those of you who raced, thanks again for coming out. In addition to GC changes, I’m also thinking about adding a 40+ category.
I hope to get some pictures up in a few days.
