How many miles can you ride in 24 hours? Ciclistas del Valle member Jim Pyatt knows how many he can ride – 416.5!
On November 2-3, he competed in the 6-12-24 Hour World Time Trial Championships in California’s Coachella Valley. Racing was a non-drafting, time trial format, where riders tried to rack up as many miles as possible on an extremely flat and fast course. The event drew endurance athletes from all over the world, inlcuding Slovenia, United Kingdom, Italy, Canada and the United States. Field sizes doubled over the inaugural year and the 24 hour race is a UMCA World Cup event and RAAM Qualifier.
Congratulations to Jim on a great race. His official results:
• 1st place in his men’s age group
• 416.5 Miles
• Average Speed – 18.3 mph
• 7th Overall
• 4th American
