In 2013, we are planning on doing Time Trials again on Tuesday evenings on selected dates (dates will be posted soon).

What Is CMC Time Trial?

Straight Talk:
Really Fun!! One of CMC's Best Training Activities
     -'Real adrenalin rush! Tons of high-fives, Sense of accomplishment'
Basically, Bike As Fast as You Can.
    -'You and your bike against the course and the clock' 
No Drafting, All The Power Comes From You.
    -'No help from others, you're riding it solo'
Excellent Race Simulation
    -'Feels a lot like the real thing, great way to track your improvement'
Technical Description:
An individual time trial (ITT) is a road bicycle race in which cyclists race alone against the clock (in French: contre la montre - literally "against the watch"). There are also track-based time trials where riders compete in velodromes, and team time trials (TTT). ITT's are also referred to as "the race of truth", as winning depends only on each rider's strength and endurance, and not on help provided by team-mates and others riding ahead and creating a slipstream.
Starting times are at equal intervals, usually one or two minutes apart. The starting sequence is usually based on the finishing times in preceding races (or preceding stages in the case of a multi-stage race) with the highest ranked cyclist starting last. Starting later gives the racer the advantage of knowing what time they need to beat (and also makes the event more interesting to spectators). Competitors are not permitted to draft (ride in the slipstream) behind each other. Any help between riders is forbidden. The rider with the fastest time is declared the winner.
