BTC is gathering a group to go up to the Calga cycling time trial event on Sunday 1 November. This is the perfect opportunity for athletes to try out the infamous monthly Calga time trial if they've never done it before with experienced Calga-ers Mike Taylor and Chris Hislop on hand to answer your questions. Or for those who are Calga regulars, here is your chance to test yourself against "iron-Mike" and "World-Champs Chris".
We will be racing on the 25km course; however there is also a 43km option for those who want to go long.
The first rider is off the ramp at 8am sharp, and then each rider is off at 1minute intervals after that. Rider positions are determined on a first come first served basis, so the closer you arrive to 7:00am the more choice on start time you will have!
Entry fees are $15 for juniors (U18) and ATTA members; $25 for non-members registered/insured riders (CA and TRI); $30 for unregistered riders inc. insurance for the day.
Course instructions and guidelines here. The event will run rain, hail or shine!
Parking & registration is on the corner of Peats Ridge Rd & Jones Rd, Calga. This is approx. 50mins drive north from Balmoral up the Pacific Highway and M1 Motorway.
Mike Taylor and Chris Hislop will be there at 7am to meet anyone else keen to join in. Look out for them in their BTC gear. There should be some time for a warm up too. All abilities welcome.
If you would like to know more get in touch with Chris via email; firstname.lastname@example.org (that's a double underscore!).
**Please note no club points are given out for this event, this is purely a test for you and your bike! The event is run by the Australian Time Trial Association.
