Jamie Whitmore (@gutzytrigirl) likely had more World Championship titles than most anybody prior to this weekend and at the 2015 Para-Cycling Road World Championships added two more to her quiver. Jamie, a former XTERRA World Champion and owner of seven other Para World titles on the road and track prior to the 2015 Worlds, won no.’s 9 and 10 in taking the C3 titles in both the TT and Road events in Nottwil, Switzerland. The cancer survivor and long-time athlete was quick to site on Twitter, “I couldn’t do it without the fastest bikes on the planet! Every 1 has been on a Felt!” We are humbled and have never been prouder–congrat’s, Jamie!!
Meanwhile, halfway across the world Tim Reed (@timboreed) continued to have his best season ever and he took a very exciting Ironman 70.3 Philippines which went literally down to the wire. After exiting the water within just over a minute of the rest of the top-10 men, Tim mashed out a 2:03.21 bike ride, 3rd fastest of the day and within 6 seconds of the top-2 times of Tim Van Berkel and Brent McMahon. After gapping McMahon, it turned into a tooth-and-nail run with Tim just out-kicking Berkel to take the win. It was a super effort and finish which comes at a very exciting time in the Reed family’s lives as they recently celebrated the birth of their new son. Double congratulations, Tim!!
In road news, the Tour of Utah starts today and both of last week’s Cascade Cycling Classic team winners Hincapie Racing (@TeamHincapie) and Team TWENTY16 p/b Sho-Air (@TeamTWENTY16) will be competing.
