April 21, 2017 – Rally Cycling’s Evan Huffman won the Tyrone individual time trial for the second time in his career Friday with a lightning fast time of 33.07. Huffman was 25 seconds quicker than runner up T.J. Eisenhart (Holowesko|Citadel). Nigel Ellsay (Silber Pro Cycling) finished third, 33 seconds off the winning pace.

“I think this was a better performance than my win in 2012,” said Huffman who now leads the Tour of the Gila by 25 seconds. “This is my fifth time doing this. I felt really good, speed and power wise, and made it happen. I’m really happy. This time is a little different now that I’m in the leader jersey. I think I have a legitimate shot at holding it to the last day.”

Eisenhart’s performance on the 16.5 mile (26km) out and back time trial bumped him up from 22nd place to second place, while previous leader Matteo Dal-Cin (Rally Cycling) moved down to third place heading into tomorrow’s downtown criterium.

“I went out there, had a target of power that I wanted to hit and stuck to that plan,” Eisenhart said. “I didn’t panic, stayed in my limit. My plan today was to put as much time into the climbers as possible. To finish second to a guy like Huffman is an honor. I’m happy with my time, I honestly went out there and had fun.”

Eisenhart’s teammate Brendan Rhim was the first rider to spend a considerable amount of time in the hot seat, clocking an impressive 34:48 as one of the early starters. George Simpson (Gateway Harley Davidson) knocked Rhim out of the top spot with a time of 34:26, which was good enough to get the young rider into the top 10 at the end of the day.

Simpson’s result stood the test of time until Huffman and Eisenhart came across the line, and from then on, no one could top them.

Looking forward to tomorrow’s criterium, Huffman will take over the leader’s jersey and Travis McCabe (UHC) stays on top of the sprint classification. Bayron Guamá is the KOM leader and Alex Cowan (Silber) takes the lead in the best young rider competition.
