Michael Beers (Breinigsville, PA) continued the string of hometown victories by winning the elite men's kilometer time trial finals with a time of 1.07.453 over Adam Duvendeck (Colorado Springs, Colo.) This is Beers first individual national title; he has won two tandem national championships ('00, '01). Duvendeck won the espoir title in the men's kilo for his efforts.

"I knew I had a chance at the title when I saw the time that Adam rolled... then I thought I could make it," said Beers, who spends his time coaching track and instructing kids on helmut safety when he isn't training. "I've been riding well, so I thought I could roll that time; I've been rolling under it consistently in training and I thought I could do it tonight."

Ronne Irvine (Herndon, VA) was the sole Paralympic rider competing in the LC1 (below the knee amputee) division, winning the kilo in addition to the 4000m pursuit title on Wednesday.

  • Mike "Speedy" Beers adds a second National Championship for the Kilo - to go with his Tandem Match Sprint Title from 2001.
  • Adam Duvendeck of Focus 2004 cracked a fast time of 1:07.641 which held until Mike "Speedy" Beers knocked two tenths off.
  • Marty Nothstein was prepared to ride the Kilometer TT in defens of his National Title. Even had a brand new, tricked out Australian BT bike. Due to the compressed schedule following the rain-outs, he scratched in favor of riding the Points Race heats and final the same night.
