Impressive results and efforts on the individual TT this week! It was a blast to watch the results filter in all week. The blazing fast times in the desert shook up the GC standings. Burmeister retains the Yellow Jersey, opening a 2 minute gap on the filed. Wes diesels his way into second overall, while other big engines like Jason and Carl moved up in the overall GC standings. This week saw the debut of several new riders with Garrett, Luke, Jim, Jaden, Colin, Kris, Ryan, the other Ryan and the other Doug M all posting stout times. (For the newly joined, your iTT time was used to calculate a “grant” time for Stage 1, giving you an overall GC time to continue on with…for better or worse, it’s the best we could do).
The team points were still very close this stage, but the order remained the same – Gray on top followed by Blue then Orange. Each stage is a new chance for the teams to mix it up, though. Ans Stage 3 should provide that.
Stage 2 results have their own tab in the spreadsheet. There’s now an OVERALL STANDINGS tab as well.
