Its Time Trial season again! Everything starts up Tuesday, April 1st. No fooling.
First reminder is that you need to be an active Chinook club member, have a signed waiver on file with the club, and have submitted a completed TT Series form. If you're going for the family membership, we still need to have a waiver and TT Series form for each rider. There is no extra fee for the TT Series, it is included with your overall club membership.
Please, please have your forms and fees submitted to (and received by!) the club BEFORE the first TT event. We know that there's paperwork involved, but we would rather deal with it before the first event, so we too can get out on course and ride that night.
This year will continue with a normal points allotment for the 40k, no double points. Primary reason being to alleviate the need to ride too hard in extremely hot weather. The 40k will count the same as all the other events. If it is crazy hot on that day, please ride smart and easy. Or just take the week off and count it towards one of your two 'free' skipped events.
The 5 mile and 40k courses are the same as they have been. The 10 mile course is out at E Foster Wells Rd again this year, with a slightly revised start/finish and turnaround locations. The Hill Climb will be going back to Bofer Rd this year. Course details and parking locations are included in the TT Schedule document.
See you out there on April 1st.
