We could not have asked for better conditions then what we experienced this week. Little wind, nice temperatures and the ozone level was reasonable, considering all the fires in the area.
For the men, we had a new course record of 19 minutes flat set by Serghei Tvetcov. Serghei is a professional cyclist, and currently rides for the UCI Continental team Team Sapura Cycling. He is the current time trial champion of Romania and this year he came in second overall in the Tour of Szeklerland and won the individual time trial stage.
Second place for the men was Brennan Wertz, who came in two seconds behind Serghel with a time of 19:02.
For the women, Betsy Mercer and Jennifer Sharp tied with a time of 23:45. Mia Aseltine the amazing and fastest junior was right behind with a time of 24:07.
The current points standing are posted on the khmt.com website.
On the points standings page, you will see an * next to all names who qualify for a metal. The standings posted are not the final, as we will wait a couple of days in case of any protests due to missing or incorrectly recorded times. It should be final by the weekend.
Each year we order the medals as soon as we have the final count then mail them out to all the winners within a few days of receiving them from the manufacture. This year we will be sending out about 65 medals, and it takes a while to package and mail them all out. Look for them in about a month.
