Twelve riders competed in this week’s Eaglecrest time trial cycling event, two women and 10 men. The course climbed 1,150 feet over 4.5 miles on good road conditions with little through automobile traffic.
Even with a rather stiff headwind and cool conditions the riders times were a good indicator that their winter and spring training has paid off.
