It pains me to do this yet again, but tonight’s hillclimb is canceled due to a severe thunderstorm watch.

I’m canceling tonight’s short time trial as the temperature at 6 pm is expected to be 92 degrees and the heat index is off the charts.
Due to the wet forecast and scary road conditions for the descent, tonight’s Skinner Hill Climb is canceled. Our “in-person” hill climb record is now 0 for 2.
A wind from the deep south blew an old friend to the Deerfield TT tonight and he rode the haboob all the way north to McClellan Farm Road and back down south to the River Road fire hydrant near the grass court tennis players.
This may not be a popular decision but today’s results will not count in the standings as I don’t want to penalize those who are smarter than me. Think of it as an awesome training ride or something like that.
It was a little surreal to see some familiar faces and bikes in real life for the first time in about a year and a half.
Another hillclimb in the books. We saw the return from the frozen hinterlands of Owen Wright who scorched the course, knocking a full minute off his PR. Are you sure you know where the start and finish line is Owen?? Nick took 31 seconds off his PR and Melissa shaved a full 1:39. Nice job folks!
So many challenges with today’s second short TT of the 2021 season. First, there were all the locusts in the road to avoid. Then there was the hail followed by the massive fissure that opened up in the road near Depot Road in Hatfield. Finally, there was the free ice cream cone give-away at the 5J Creamery. So distracting!
