Marcia Burnside Memorial Time Trial – Cripple Creek: 5/4/2017

**** CORRECTION. IT WAS REPORTED MARCUS HAD THE COURSE RECORD. THANKS TO A CLUB MEMBER BETTER AT SEARCHING THE RACE ARCHIVES THAN ME MARCUS MISSED THE COURSE RECORD BY A SHORT 6 SECONDS. THE RECORD BY TYSON STILL STANDS AT 28.14 ON MAY 6, 2010. REGARDLESS, MARCUS’ TIME ON CRIPPLE CREEK WAS WICKED FAST!!

First off this race is to commemorate Marcia Burnside. She was a tremendous volunteer and was also very instrumental in getting the club to where it is today. This race recognizes the efforts of all club volunteers throughout the year and serves to show how important volunteering is for Fairbanks cycling in general. Tonight’s wonderful volunteers were Eric, Bruce and Pam. This club does not exist without volunteers like them. THANK YOU!!

Wow!! What a great night!! With occasional gusts of wind riders took off in great cool conditions and lit up the Cripple Creek course. The good pavement allowed for some pretty quick times as MARCUS FARRIS SET AN UNBEATABLE PACE!!!! With blazing fast speed Marcus had a great run on the fast course. He along with Tyson and Joel were the only riders to break the 30 minute mark.

The ladies on the other hand had a very heated contest. ALISABETH SMOKED THE COURSE FOR A SCORCHING FAST 36.43. She and Davya distanced themselves from the field. But then things got interesting! Between Kelly, Karri, Nikki, and Corrine there was only 16 seconds that separated the four riders!!

Masters men saw ANDREW WELLER and KEN LEARY WIN THEIR RESPECTIVE CLASSES. Chris lead and Greg just held off Larry to round out the podium.

BEN KAHOE ALSO BROKE THE 35 MINUTE and looked very strong crossing the line.

Greg’s work with the Junior racers is already showing. JORDAN LAKER-MARS RIPPED THROUGH THE COURSE IN JUST UNDER 36 MINUTES. Lars, Sebiyam, and Daniel also showed their road racing abilities with great showings.

Very well done to all the racers.
