Tour of Greenwich Race Report: Karen Strauss

 

TTEndurance had a strong showing at the 2015 Tour de Greenwich on Sunday, 9/15, represented by Eric Sydor, Beth Allen-Reilly, Gregg Ziebell, and Karen Ziebell.  While a bit of a tricky race day, given wet conditions … and a couple of steep climbs – the TTE Team rode away with remarkable results!

 

 

Eric took second place in his age group and 13th overall, while impressively shaving 6 minutes off of his prior performance in Tour de Greenwich – finishing the 20 mile course in 0:50:29, an exceptional 23.8 mph average.  Gregg, returning to the race after a 16 year hiatus, took an astounding 16 minutes off of his prior performance, finishing the course in 1:00:01, an outstanding 20.0 mph.  Beth rode a superior race taking first place in her age group, finishing in1:08:35, an impressive 17.5 average!  And finally, as a last minute entry (yes, about 10 minutes before they were lining up!) Karen entered her first cycling race and rode away with her first podium appearance, taking third place in her age group with a 1:09:56 finish, an incredible 17.2 average! 

 

Despite slick conditions, the TTE’ers had a great morning – fantastic results and smiles abound!
