FDC TT#5: August Results

Round 5 brought favourable conditions and fast times. Many riders laying down their first times of the year – we will see if these times can be lowered next month!

Round 6 is fast approaching: Tuesday, September 5. Please plan on hanging around for a season-ending tailgate social to follow!

Mr and Mrs Consistency awards go to Dionne and Joey for pretty much exact replicas of their July rides – according to our very sophisticated timing system! Kudos to Mr Pat Bell for a very impressive fast time of the night – representing the Eddy contingent with panache! Chapeau aussi to Julie Reiter for dropping an astounding  SEVEN MINUTES this season, earning herself the third fastest women’s course time of the year and a big ole’ bullseye on her back for next month.

FDTT #4

Such a beautiful night. What every baby TT dreams of being when it grows up.

The reign of Chris Duran, Duran continues!  This season’s fastest mark has been lowered by 12 seconds. Looking forward to seeing what can be laid out next month.

FDTT#3 Results

Alas, another month, another cool & windy TT night.

But we know this is June is Essex County and the best is yet to come. Mark your calendars; round 4 is July 4th.

We Save(d) a Prayer that someone would show up to knock Mark Henry of his lofty perch of fastest time of the year and What are the Chances, but the Notorious Chris Duran, Duran was Hungry Like a Wolf and obliged. Is There Something we Should Know, Chris?

Don’t worry everyone, It’s a New Moon on Monday so next month, all bets will be off. You’ll get him in July. You’ll need a View to Kill, as it’s unlikely he’ll have Come Undone by then.

Side Note: thanks to everyone’s participation we were able to donate $950 to ALS Windsor-Essex via the ALS 12-hour run last weekend! With your help, they’ve raised over $40,000 since April 2015 – all of which stays to support families in our region. Thank-you so so so much for your ongoing support.

Can you feel the heat coming off these bad boys? T’was the hottest night of the year, enticing a whole whack of new riders out of the AC and onto the road. Big Ups, everyone!

Round 3: June FDTT

Round 3 is in the books! Conditions were cool with a good quarter of the course affected by steamroller of a Nor’wester. Fast times, regardless. We can always count on you guys for that!!

Meg’s Picks of the night:

1. Rod Shepley lays down the 5th fastest-EVER Eddy time (by 1 second, sorry Craigie,) taking nearly 2 minutes off his previous best. We may have to re-designate the Rod the Rocket moniker.

2. Not to be outdone, Dionne sets the women’s Eddy record! The timers were getting text message comments on her speed while she was out of the course. Too bad Dionne the Rocket just doesn’t have the same ring. Dionne the Daemon? We’ll keep working on it.

3. Another great turnout means we will be able to donate $700 to the ALS WeCan campaign on ride day: June 25th. Come get down with our sweaty-selves at the after party at Pelee Island Winery – tickets and donations are at: www.alswecan.com

Results: FDTT 2016 April & May

TT season is well underway – now with one cold and frosty version and one lovely, pseudo-springlike version under our belts.

Once again this year, all proceeds will be donated to the ALS We Can drive. Please spread the word as we have a big goal of raising $25,000 this year!

A few notables:

Russ aka Neuron Saul coming out to lay down the fastest Aero time of the year (and top 5 fastest-ever) at 33.11 – Bravo!

Pat Bell for SMASHING his best-ever time. That new bike is really paying off ;)

 

Many new faces already this year – Welcome! Hope to see everyone back out in June!

FDTT#6 Results and Wrap-Up

Farm Dog Cycles Time Trial # 3 - Cedar Beach sunset

Another year in the books, folks.

Aided by low pressure off the mid-Atlantic, it was a very fine September evening indeed. Nice enough to entice a whole dog-pile of rookies out to take a stab at their first-ever Time Trial. Welcome!! It hurts here, but people are pretty nice.

First and foremost,

Thanks to everyone that came out this year, we raised $1,170 to be donated to the ALS Society of Windsor-Essex.

There is a beautiful irony to really testing/abusing our own mobility to be able to restore a little to those who don’t get to make that choice anymore. Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you for helping us to do this.

 

Secondly, RESULTS. It was indeed spicy; as stated, atmospheric pressure and the wicked wind from the east smiled upon us; that, and 6-odd months of hard work by y’all are reflected in the results. So many PBs and a few new CRs to boot!

Men’s Aero – Mr. Lionel Sanders. Thanks for comin’ out and beating up us mortals. Mt Oxley will need another 5 years to recover.

Women’s Aero – Kirsty Knaziew. Smokin’ HOT – 20th fastest time of the year. SHIZA

Men’s Eddy – Liam Brennan. Every month, driving home after TT, Liam says “I don’t think I’ll ever be able go that fast again.” AND HE MEANS IT. I stopped listening 3 months ago. So proud of my boy :)

Fist Bumps all around! You’re all winners, but we don’t give purple ribbons here.
