Feldman starts bike season with TT win

Jason Broome 10-miler

     Back on the road outside of Boise Sunday, April 14 were Idaho bicycle racers testing their spring legs in the Jason Broome Memorial Time Trial competition on a 10-mile course 15 miles east of the capital city.

     Ketchum’s Richard Feldman, 44, of Durance-Colnago team and no stranger to the top of the time trial podium, led 74 finishers with a final time of 20 minutes and 26 seconds.

     Masters 35-plus racer, Feldman won by 9.5 seconds over Men’s Category 1/2 Kai Applequist, 31, of Boise.

     Feldman is the reigning Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) Master World Time Trial king, having won his third TT title in a row and seventh world championship overall last Aug. 23 on a 15.69-mile course at Wartburg, South Africa.

     Top female out of 16 in Sunday’s interval start race that started near the Stage Stop Truck Stop was 37-year-old Sarah Barber of Boise in 24:03, good for 26th overall.

     Reigning national time trial queen Patty Puz, 74, of Sun Valley, also riding for Ketchum-based Durance-Colnago, was 73rd overall in 34:04. She ended up as the 15th female.

     Winning the Men’s Category 4 class and placing 14th overall was Durance-Colnago racer Nate Galpin, 37, of Hailey in 22:31.

     New to the road biking scene, Josh Kantor, 30, of Ketchum, finished second in Men’s Category 5 Sunday and was 43rd overall in 25:48.

     Sunday’s race was the first of three events and the only time trial in the George’s Cycles of Boise 2013 Spring Race Series. Other races:

  •  On Sunday, April 28: The Chicken Dinner Road Race on 60-mile and 48-mile courses south of Nampa.
