2017 Early Results:
Cessford (5pts), Richardsen (3pts) and Takeda (1pt) podium at the UBC Triathlon.
Cessford claims it was his hardest race. It appears the commonly held theory amongst VCC riders that 'Zwift miles account for squat' is entirely true yet untrue. We can't ever trust this sandbagger so we really don't know any more than we did before. He probably crushed the bike leg.
Chilly Hilly: Harrington (10pts), Takeda (9pts), Stevenson (8pts), Skinner (7pts), Richardsen (6pts), Cessford (5pts), Barrie (4pts), Fun-guy(3pts), Egan (2pt) and Karen (1pt) complete Chilly Hilly.
Those that rode down to Bellingham were ranked highest, but still there was no match for Harrington and Cessford who rode out early from the 25km aid station with an unflappable race tactic of 'skipping the baked potato'. Strava was in an uproar as it appeared Barrie had a fiery finish for the ages in an unsuccessful attempt to reel in his nemesis: Eric Cessford. Barrie won the day's award for 'least friendly' as he blew past Egan, Fungi and Stevenson without so much as a 'Cheerio' or a 'Pleasant day for riding, isn't it?' It seems the 2017 crown is too great a prize for the old champion.
Many thanks to Pam, Daisy, Sarah + Brittany for coming along (1pt). We unfortunately were unable to remember who lasted the longest on the mechanical bull, so unfortunately I guess that just means that it won (3pts).
