2014 Kings Gap Time Trial, August 30, 2014

 

 

Another beautiful morning greeted the 65 registered riders for the 2014 Kings Gap Time Trial. This year was the best attended event in it's four year running!
 
The 3.3 mile climb up the mountain began at 8:45 with each rider taking off in one minute increments. This year not only had the most registered racers, but we saw some really fast times! Records were broken and smiles were in abundance!!!
 
For the third year in a row our fastest male rider was John Salus from Mechanicsburg. With a winning time of 10:46 (WOW!), which was 36 seconds faster than his winning time last year. The top finisher for the women hailed from Frederick MD again, however this year it was her first time competing here at the Kings Gap TT. Laura Cathers raced up in 14:01, a full 35 seconds faster than last year's winner from Frederick MD, Alissa Gindlesperger. What is in that water down in Fredericksburg??
 
During the race, the spectators were entertained by our colorful 'Master of Ceremonies', Keith Spangler who played music, worked the crowd and gave us some insight into the riders and their machines as they crossed the finish line.
 
Morning refreshments of muffins, bagels, bananas, juice and coffee was served by the Friends of Kings Gap, for whom the net proceeds of the event are donated.
 
After raffling off many generous gift certificates from our local bike shops, the top three male and female finishers were recognized with trophies and medals.
