[Updated with photos] The Bermuda Bicycle Association recently staged its first official event of the year, with the VT Construction Individual 10.8 mile time trial taking place with safety regulations in effect.

With the normal season having been put on hold due to the Covid-19 pandemic, riders and officials were excited to finally get the season underway.

Riders were required to register online, which gave each rider an official start time of one minute between riders and also served to help limit contact with race officials, who were required to wear face masks and observe social distance recommendations.

Riders were required to start with one foot on the ground and not held by an official which would be normal practice. Despite the restrictions, 36 riders participated in hot, humid conditions.

Last year’s winner and course record holder Kaden Hopkins had another strong performance, clocking a time of 23:09, with an average speed of 28mph. Conor White was second in 24:45, with Alexander Miller in third and top junior finisher at 25:15. Juniors Nic Narraway and Liam Flannery rounded out the top five in 25:22 and 25:30 respectively.
