McDonald sets record time in Bike Club time trial

The Blizzard Bike Club raced in another time trial Thursday in preparation for its weekend Club Championship race. Thursday evening, members of the Club raced in either an 8 km or 16 km time trial, with Sandy McDonald placing first in the 16 km distance.

McDonald’s first place finish came at a time of 25:27, which was significant, as it was an all time personal record for the racer, as well as the fastest course time for a female.

Roger St. Jean was second place in the 16 km race, crossing the finish line at 26:22, with Richard Wood earning a third place finish at 26:26.

In the evening’s 8 km ride, Club member Tristin finished first at 22:33, while Barb Polehoykie earned second place, crossing the finish line only one second later with a time of 22:34.

This weekend, the Blizzard Bike Club will be holding its Club Championship road race Sunday, June 24, beginning at 10 a.m. from the Wood Corner on the Montney highway.
