stagecoach 100mi TTT (Jan 14, 2012)


the Stagecoach 100-mile TTT/century ride is now behind us!
Descenders came out in huge numbers, as always, fielding 4 teams for TTT, as well as several individual riders. It was a great day – a bit cold at times and some mild winds, but overall conditions were fantastic, as evidenced by shattered records.
Results are now posted at

Every Descenders team and I suspect almost every rider set their personal and team best time. Teams A and B both broke the previous course record (unfortunately Broadcom Team A spoiled the party, so we had to settle for 2nd and 3rd overall).

Team A (Rick Bienias, Bob Raibert, Oleg Shpyrko and David Voris) 4:41:15
Team B (Brian Bailey, Bernie Bogard, David Guidotti and Keith James) 4:46:44
Team C (Geoff Barrall, Mike Hodges, Bob Proulx and Claus Schulze) 5:17:12
Team D (a trio of Dave Ernst, Dave Sheehan and Rob Verfurth) 5:29:20
Len Nathe 5:46:29

I couldn’t find John Moran in results but he rode, finished and was smiling. 
Drew Peterson, who rides with us on occasion. finished 1st in solo division in amazing 4:47:31.

We also had several spouses riding – Joyce (Keith’s wife) and Denise (Rick’s wife) rode 50 and 60 miles, respectively. 
Andrea Raibert and kids provided some moral support on the course as well. 

Excellent event with a HUGE Descenders presence! Can’t wait for next year.
