Time Trialing

2009-11-05 15:32:34.918409+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Some fun reminiscences about bicycling time-trialing, John Frey's U.S. National record set back in 1990, and the course in Moriarty NM.

... Oddly, and almost unbelievably, as at least it seems to me, these marks are way more obtainable than is the one at the bottom of the list. In 2003, the man whose physiology should be studied by scientists the world over, a dude named Jack Pardee pedaled a bicycle 40 kilometers in 57 minutes and six seconds, to set the U.S. national mark for men who are at least 85 years of age.

Be sure to read the first comment, too.

Some of the guys I was riding with for a while know Kent Bostick and have spoken of him multiple times. The man is STILL an animal. Come to find out, he doesn't even train seriously anymore (according to the guys) and he still wins every time trial he enters.
