Footbike Race Results Feb 2010

February 22, 2010 0 Comments

Thumbs up for the Criterium Track at Murarrie by the entire contingent of competitors of the Short Course Footbike Races on the weekend. It was less windy than the route at Nundah – and easier for spectators to see the riders on the course.

A shower of rain greeted the start, leaving puddles on the track, and a stiff breeze kept the day cool for riders. Despite these conditions records still fell.

Due to course restraints and in anticipation of the World Championships in August this year, a 400m sprint was chosen over the regular 1km time trial. Records for the 10km race were broken by reigning champions in the men and women’s divisions – Alan Stewart bettered his time by 37 seconds and Sharon Simmons improved her performance by 24. And young Ali Hassan blasted his previous 5km record by almost 2 minutes.

The day’s results:

Female 400m sprint – Open
Sharon Simmons – 53.48secs
Karen Toll – 1min 09.43secs
