Sunday's Race Results

The Yangmingshan riders fared well on Sunday. Steve Seymour set the pace in the Elite 35+ category with a blistering 11:13:34. He was followed closely by Leon (11:38:40) and Steve Reed (11:47:85). Dave Wittry put in a strong ride to finish 8th (13:18:36). The remainder of the field of 30 or so racers trickled in after with the boys taking out the top podium spots.

Bill hung in with the young pups and looked to be about to take it in the sprint when his foot came unclipped from his pedal. He managed to limp across the line in second at 11:23:51.

On one website following the race, Dave Wittry's wife translated the caption under the photo of the old gits as "foreigners have good manners."

See you out in the hills!

Short hill climb race Sunday, 11/13

There is a short (10-15 minute) hill climb race this Sunday on
Elspeth's Hill (past the National Palace Museum). Riders go off by
age category; there is also a category for mountain bikes. It's
usually a real citizen's race.

If you're interested in coming, we'll be meeting at the TAS Main Gate
8 am. First races start at 9 am. Registration is 200NT.

Hope to see you there!
