Well Sunday April 18th brought about the annual Yankee Springs Time Trial. The traditional kickoff of the Cross Country race season (20 years old now). An overall beautiful day that got off to a COLD start! I pity the couple of teammates that actually camped out there the night before! BBRRR! The race is also a fundraiser for the Western M.M.B.A. and the Yankee Springs Trail (Deep Lake Rustic Campground). The team made a good showing sporting our newest Founders kit, which is the Harvest Ale. Tim Curtis set the bar high as our fastest on the day with a blistering time of 1:42:33 to win the Mens Expert 50+ class. Hardware was also scored by our own Dirty Ernie Stafford in the Clydesdale Sport Class with a time of 58:11 to take the 3rd spot. And myself with a personal best time of 53:36 to take the Sport 45-49 Class.
