Local triathlon club hosted over 70 cyclists at a holiday time trial

On a blustery ​holiday Monday (Victoria Day), Loaring Personal Coaching (LPC) held their annual Victoria Day Time Trial outside of Guelph, Ontario. In this year’s edition, ​a record number of cyclists and triathletes (73) came out to test their fitness. Despite the windy conditions, the event was a good warm-up effort for the Milton Triathlon/Duathlon/Relay on June 2nd.

Ed's time of 18:40 (46.3kph) was 61secs ahead of Ethan Sittlington, and 65secs ahead of Cody Beals. Last year's Victoria Day overall winner Andrew Bolton was 4th in 19:53. The Women's Aero was a fierce battle for the top spot. Kirsten Marchant finished in an impressive 23:04 (37.46kph), 2secs ahead of last years Labour Day TT winner Andrea Smith. Jessica Kuepfer, the current Women's Aero course record holder, claimed the final spot of a very competitive women's overall podium. Jacob Jamnicky was the top Male Eddy in 21:09 (40.85kph), followed by Dylan Pust and Lee Rantala. Karol-Ann Roy was first among Eddy Women in 25:21 (34.08), with Madeleine Kennedy and Isabella Mastroianni rolling 2-3 respectively. Many thanks to all who took part and volunteered. Over $750 was raised for the LPC Hurdle Project. Thank you for your support! We look forward to seeing you at our next TT on Canada Day 🙂
