Date: Thursday, May 4th Location: Crowsfoot Start Time: 7:00pm (Registration 6:30pm with Kevin S). We are changing the start to 7:00pm for reduced traffic as well as to give members additional time to get to the location, warmup etc. Estimated Finish Time: 8:00pm Discipline: Time Trial Culture: Race but open to all ability levels! Approximate Distance: 13.8km
We are going back to our Crowsfoot course! This course has been a longstanding WCC tradition that has been in use since the early 70’s. It is just under 14km, flat and very fast with a slight downhill to start and uphill to challenge you at the finish.
All ability levels are welcome. Any bike type is welcome as well (no e-Bikes). People have raced on road, TT, cross/gravel, MTB’s, hand cycles etc.
There are two categories “Aero” and “Road Bike”:
Aero: Anything goes (No UCI restrictions)
Road: No clip on aerobars, no TT disc rear wheels, no TT specific helmet. (Aero road helmets are fine, skin suits are fine)
All bike types are welcome. If you have clip on aerobars on your road bike you can participate, you’ll just be slotted into the aero category.
If you have specific questions prior to your ride please ask here.
Thanks and see you there!
Chris and Kevin

I will hopefully be there early enough to pre-ride the course…and set my time. I would ask that anyone interested please mark as going and reply to this thread with an expected finish time. I do have some archival times, but your situation may have changed and I’d like to seed everyone as early as possible to give you an idea when your start time will be. It also gives me an idea on how many people to expect …so I can plan for appropriate start intervals.
See you Thursday evening all …weather is looking better than the last few days so come out and set your benchmark time!
I’d love to but I currently have my gravel tires set up tubeless on and no usable second wheel set yet and don’t have the time to change them out for my road tires! I can’t ask the wife to buy anymore bikes at this point
@Bopper Ronan Mantle is going to show, he was at 22 mins last year I believe. But he is experiencing the opposite of most of us here and is bigger stronger and faster. I’d know 30secs off his expected time (pure guess)
