Fifty-one competitors represented
Frazier Cycling at the seventh annual Glass Blowers Tundra Time
Trial held on Saturday, February 14, 2009, near Hiram, Georgia.
Our club had 31 Juniors and 20 Seniors in the race. This was our
biggest turn-out for the event and our club had the largest number
participants in the race, which had 312 finishers. We took six
medals. Philip O'Donnell and Kat Tindol were
division winners; David Goodman, Andrew Macrae, and
Johnny Mayero were runners up and Nick Frazier placed third.
Men's 10-12-year-old National Champion, Philip O'Donnell
won the Youth Division's 4.75-mile trial trial in record time, 12
minutes, 26 seconds. Andrew Macrae was a close second place, with
his 12:31. Both racers shattered the previous record of 13
minutes, 31 seconds.
Kat Tindol won the overall Women's 9.5-mile time trial by
nearly 41 seconds!
David Goodman and Nick Frazier placed second and third,
respectively, in the 9.5-mile Juniors time trial. Fifteen year-old
David averaged 25.31 mph! David and Nick were the fourth and fifth
fastest racers among our 51 members.
Johnny Mayero had his best performance to date as a
Category 3 racer. He finished in second place in the 9.5-mile
Men's Cat 3 division with an average speed of 26.496 mph, his all-time
fastest FCP ride! Frazier Cycling's Men's Cat 3 team had an
outstanding day as all three club representatives placed in the top
5 of the division. Along with Johnny's 2nd place
finish, was Joe Rosentel, 4th, 26.204 mph, and Mike
Tindol, 5th, 25.983 mph.
Coach Kelli and I were very proud of our club's
performances - Juniors and category racers, alike!
Here is my immediate impression after the race:
"The race community has regarded Frazier Cycling
as a Junior development only club; however, toward the end of the
2008 race season, I felt that we were making headway in Men's and
Women's Category racing. Frazier Cycling's mission is to
bring success to all ages. Today, Kat Tindol, Johnny Mayero, Joe
Rosentel, and Mike Tindol are proving that Frazier Cycling is
also a Senior development club, too."
