Time Trial Results, Birdeye

Brandon Boger at the turn around...the only one without a helmet!

That's Whit chasing the winners of the
time trial...Chloe, Whit and Stella did a great
job of cheering on the starters and welcoming
the finishers back to the Birdeye Store

The timing tent...

Here's Beth at the turn around...
see the traffic on the road...

The BBC after the event...Stella, Becca Jackson, Stan & Beth Bradshaw, Martin & Kara Smith, Cecelia Killough, Whit,Beth Huff, Chloe, me & Jackie, Chuck Blanton, Kyle Killough,
Neall and Sol Jackson, Mark Pierce and his wife and Tony Watts
The winners, a shout out for them riding down from Jonesboro, doing the 24 miles then riding back, that would be about 94 miles today. And they are, drum roll please....Richard Eagen & Andy Shatley, and I am assuming these other 2 are their support team members that I do not have any names on.....

Well a giant shout out to the Birdeye Bicycle Club for pulling off its first annual (there is talk of a "next year") Birdeye Time Trial.  We had 9 preregistered and 2 day of event registrations.  Thanks to Gearhead Cycle House for sponsoring the event and bringing some boys to participate!  I cannot tell you all how much we appreciated the Cross County Sheriff and Poinsett County Sheriff for both sending officers on the course to slow traffic and make today a safe event, Chuck Blanton and Jackie for doing the timing, Kyle for suggesting this idea for an event, Cecilia for doing the registration, Neall and Becca for getting the keg, Beth Huff for helping me mark the course and Kara for handling the Birdeye Store.  It was a great event and we were excited to have the timing of the event down.  There is talk of a next year.  What's interesting is our winners, who were told they would get prize money, $50-1st, $35-2nd and $20-3rd, left the money in the hat for a next year....Here are the results:

1st Place: Richard Eagen, 1:00:04
2nd: Andy Shatley, 1:02:14
3rd and our own: Kyle Killough, 1:08:34
4th: Jason Braodaway, 1:10:29
5th: Tony Watts, 1:12:39
6th: Martin Smith, 1:15:50
7th: Mark Pierce, 1:21:59
8th: Stan Bradshaw, 1:23:11
9th: Brandon Boger, 1:24:13

Women and 2 founding members of the BBC:
1st place: Kara Smith, 1:26:32
2nd place: Beth Bradshaw, 1:33:20

Ghost River Red keg.....
And a thanks to the Birdeye Store for opening on a Sunday and supporting our event! -Keeli
