Feldman paces Idaho state time trial cyclists Underride: Racing near Lake Lowell

Racing near Lake Lowell

     Gem State bicycle time trial racers were measured on the clock Saturday, Aug. 2 riding in 90-degree heat at the USA Cycling Idaho State Time Trial Championship at Lake Lowell.

     Sixty cyclists went distances of either 40 kilometers (24.8 miles), 20k (12.4 miles) or 10k on the course near Nampa. The event was sponsored by Look! Save a Life.

     Once again, the Gem State leader was perennial state time trial king Richard Feldman of Ketchum, an easy winner in the Men’s 45-49 age class.

     Feldman’s 54:57 time for the 24.8-mile course was 2:33 faster than Men’s Cat. 1/2 winner Jamie Yanik, 38, of Boise. Yanik (57:19 for 40k) was the winner of the 45-mile men’s marathon title of the Whit Henry Memorial Galena Grinder July 26.

     Feldman was one of six Durance-Colnago team racers earning podium spots in their classes near Nampa.

     Gold medalists were Feldman, Patty Puz, John Swyers and Tom Campion. Jon Engen placed second and 88-year-old Charley French went 12.4 miles for third in the Men’s 75-79 age class. Other locals riding included Roger Miller and Craig Phelan.

     Feldman, 45, is planning to compete in the 2014 UCI World Cycling Tour (UWCT) Amateur World Championships Aug. 28-31 at Ljubljana, Slovenia. His individual time trial course event Aug. 28 will cover 18.9 kilometers (11.7 miles). He will also try to double in the Aug. 31 road race covering either 156k or 97k.

     Last September at Trento, Italy, Feldman successfully defended his Union Cycliste International (UCI) World Masters time trial title during the UCI World Cycling Tour (UWCT) finals north of Venice.

     He has won four straight UCI world time trial championships and eight overall. He was the first American to win the Masters Amateur world time trial title in 2001 at St. Johann, Austria. Since, Feldman has won seven more world rainbow jerseys—in 2003, 2004, 2005 and from 2010-13.

     On July 26, Feldman also captured his seventh straight Targhee Hill Climb up Teton Pass in eastern Idaho. In his mountain bike racing days, Feldman won the Leadville 100-mile race twice, in 1998 and 1999, and podiumed five times from 1995-99.
