Pentz Road Uphill Time Trial Results...............

Hi Everyone! What a great morning for a ride! Although, it was a bit cold out there. I would like to thank the 30 riders who came out to take part in the Pentz Road Time Trial this morning - Event #5 in the Butte Hill Climb Time Trial Series! It was GREAT having you all there - and glad to see so many folks out riding today! I would like to give a HUGE thank you to Lori Cox and Peggy Selkirk for starting the riders off today - and for Christine Roberts for taking the better photos of this event here - ! And thanks to Brad Foster's kids for providing the cheering section on the hill - that was AWESOME!!!

Okay, below are the Combined Results from this morning's Time Trial up Pentz Road - this is considered a Category 2 climb in the Series - about 5.8 miles in length and climbing approximately 1,150 feet. The next event in the Butte Series is the Coutelenc Road Time Trial on Sunday, April 5th - another Category 2 climb in the Series. The Coutelenc Time Trial climb is approximately 6.8 miles in length and has roughly 1,590 feet of elevation gain. A map of this course can be found on here - . Also, Foster Chiropractic Clinic - - will be having some goodies for the riders at the finish of this next Time Trial!

Tomorrow is the 33-Mile all-flat Aguas Frias Road Race - Registration will open at 8:30am, and the Race will start at 9:00AM, for this 33 mile FLAT route - south down Aguas Frias Road, west on Hwy. 162, north on 7-Mile Lane, east on Ord Ferry Road, with the finish back on Aguas Frias. Start/Finish line is located just south of Dayton 4-corners - across the street from the Stop Ahead Sign on Aguas Frias(where we also Start/Finish the Aguas Frias Time Trials). There will be Category "A" and "B" at this event. I'll be in the SAG vehicle behind you, if you need anything - and will be at the finish to score you. Beautiful out there this time of year! A map of this course can be found here: Total climbing = 128 feet!! Whoohoo!!

I'll send out the updated Current Standings in the Butte Hill Climb Time Trial Series later this evening.

Thank you all again - hope to see you tomorrow!
