2018 Summer Time Trials are complete!

2018 Summer Time Trials are complete! Take a look at the final overall standings and the results of each ride.

Out of the 13 races there was only one that was rained out so that’s a success in and of itself. But by the last couple of TT’s most were hoping for some precipitation to help get rid of the sand and maybe the heat.

After the TT we held the awards ceremony under the trees of Lake Bryan. Joel came out and served up hamburgers, hot dogs, and watermelon. Joe provided the participation awards, some for “special” categories. The top male and female in a few different categories received gift cards from various businesses in town. All had a good time.

Scoring was based on the following:

  • 10 points for starting a TT
  • 10 points for finishing a TT
  • 10 points for each 1% improvement
  • Points for top 10 finish in each category:  30 for first, 20 for second, 15 for third, 12 for fourth, 10 for fifth, 8 for sixth, 6 for seventh, 4 for eighth, 2 for ninth, 1 for tenth.

A rider needed to ride a minimum for 4 TT’s to be eligible for an award.  The categories and winners:

Overall

Rider with the highest score based on the above.
Will Defliese with a score of 392

Fastest Lap

Rider that turned in the fastest lap; different course distances were taken into account.
Jason Berardinelli with 12.49 mph (28:09 for No Rat Vortex). Though Jakub Valigura turned in a blistering time of 27:06 and 13.51 mph for Rat Vortex for the last TT, he was not eligible for an award since he only rode one TT.

Most Improved

Riders that had the largest improvement over the series; different course distances were taken into account.

Male – Jonathan Lidbury with a 15.37% improvement
Female – Astrid Layton with a 7.04% improvement.

Long Course – No Rat Vortex – Most Points

Male – Will Defliese
Female – Ivy Chen

Long Course – Including Rat Vortex – Most Points

Male – Allen Narita
Female – Beth Boudreau (only rode twice so was not eligible for an award)

Short Course – Most Points

Thanks to all who came out and rode and also a thanks to all the ones behind the scenes to make this a success:  Joe Tremblay, Joel Reyes, Gina Hokanson, Paulo Silva, and a special thanks to Andrew Dobson and Daniel Ioerger from Aggieland Cycling for doing the timing.  We also want to thank BTU for allowing us to hold the TT’s on their property.
