TIME TRIAL WEEKEND
A large number of great time trial results this weekend from Kim Geist Coaching athletes. At the Lake Nockamixon Time Trial in PA, Lee Sobotkin won the Cat. 4 men's category (and his time would have placed him 2nd among the Cat. 3 men) with a minute and a half improvement over last year. Julia Lonchar placed 2nd among Women Cat. 1/2. Jody Frank finished 2nd among Cat. 4 women and 5th overall among all women in her first ever time trial. Jen Gilbert finished over a minute faster than her time last year. Also, at the Shenandoah Time Trial in VA, Brian Wacik finished 2nd in his para-cycling category.

Kim Geist Coaching athletes enjoyed success this past week at the USA Junior National Track Cycling Championships held at the Valley Preferred Cycling Center in Trexlertown, PA.
Women 17-18 rider Bailey Semian rode to a 2nd place finish in the omnium (with a win in the points race - taking a lap on the field), 3rd in the individual pursuit, and 5th in the scratch race. Omnium podium:
Zac Wilson finished the men's 15-16 omnium strong. With only 4 weeks of training under his belt, Zac was able to qualify for all the final events in the mass-start races as well as set PR times in the timed races among a large field of 42 riders.
