There are TWO versions of our Time Trial Team Challenge. The first is the Individual Time Trial -- Team Challenge, and the second is a true Team Time Trial. These will both take place at our Cleves Time Trial course on Saturday, August 15, 2009. All participants must be members of the Queen City Wheels Racing Club.
THE COURSE: A 10.2 mile horseshoe shaped course with lots of rollers, no turns and no traffic signals; road is not closed, but traffic is minimal.THE DIRECTIONS: Take US50, River Road (west of downtown) to Miami Avenue in North Bend, following signs to the Harrison memorial. Turn left at the first stop sign onto Brower Road, which crosses back over US50. Parking is in the gravel lot on the left, opposite the Memorial, about 300 yards from Miami Ave. Do not park in the lot for the Memorial itself. This is where the finish line is located. Alternatively, Take I-74/I-275 to exit 7. Go south on 128 to US50 past Mt. Nebo, and turn left onto Miami Avenue (less than a mile). From Miami, turn left onto Brower Road as above.
You can either ride the course backwards (west on Brower, no turns, 10.2 miles) or ride directly to the start by returning to Miami Avenue and turning left up the hill. Turn left onto Mt. Nebo, cross US 50, and turn right on River Road.
Individual Time Trial --
THE CHALLENGE: Bring your 3 to 5 best INDIVIDUAL time trialist from your team. We will use the 3 best COMBINED times to determine your team's overall time. The team with the fastest total wins.
In addition to the two general categories, each team will also fall into one of the following gender categories:
THE STIPULATIONS: Male riders may only ride for one team. Female riders may ride for no more than one Women's Team AND one Mixed Team.
Team Time Trial Challenge
THE CHALLENGE: This is a classic team time trial, 4 riders drafting each other. We will use the time of the third rider from your team that crosses the finish line. Can your team stay together on this rolling course?
If you have any questions, and to pre-register, e-mail your team name, the names of all team members and the gender category your team will be in to BigDave.
