We are also going to hold a 20km TT on Sunday as well. We’ll have the 40km group go off first and then the 20km group. There’ll be a 10km turnaround cone and a 20km turnaround cone on the course. 20km sign up sheet coming shortly!
We currently have 11 riders for the 40k TT and 1 rider for the 20k TT. Plenty of space for more people to join in the “fun”. Looks to be a perfect day for a good hard TT. Come out and set your best time… show the clock and yourself what you’re made of. I will accept sign-ups until 9:00pm tonight.
Thank you and see you tomorrow morning.
Visitors are welcome to watch, but no follow cars on the route as the roads are open and we don’t want any accidents from inpatient drivers passing car/cyclist combinations. I will put out cones on the road at the turn-around points. Hopefully they will stay taped to the roads… but please be aware of your distances as there really are no landmarks to mark these locations. This is a straight stretch of road with no stop signs and very few landmarks. The 20 km turn around is the first side road past the town of Walton. The 10km turn around is in the middle of nowhere.
Please do your best to social distance… and do not congregate at the finish line after you’re finished. I will again post times after the event.
Thank you and have a superb race all!

Start times are final. Although I will probably give Mr. Pippy an extra minute delay so he doesn’t catch the rider in front of him too soon.
Mr. VanSpronsen will wait an extra 6 minutes to start the 20km so the riders should all come back within 15 -20 minutes…at least that’s my plan.
Have a great race against the clock everyone. See you bright and early in the morning.
And yet… you caught them ALL!!! I think next time I’ll have to give you 3 minutes. LOL
Great racing today everyone… the conditions weren’t ideal (would have preferred tailwind coming back)… but you take what you’re given and do your best. You all did wonderful!!! Here are the final results:
I have great respect for you all today, that was NOT an easy home leg. I was only able to go full power on the home leg for 10 km, before the knee/leg gave up. I guess 30 km of effort is all I am able to do for now. Great day to go ride my bike - outside!
Looking forward to the next event. We’ll try to organize another one in the next week or two.
Thank you all,
