The Tour is ON ! Let's celebrate with a race! Sunday, July 3rd! (UPDATE)



THIS IS ON !!

Most years for the Tour, there is a prologue, and a group of us get together to race the same distance but on an easier course to see how our times compare to the pros. (It is humbling.) This year there isn't a prologue, but a 23km TTT.

Sunday morning at 9am: I will find an easy 23km ITT course close to town that we can hammer on. I find this super fun since you can then compare your average speed to a well-oiled Tour team's time.

You can incorporate it into your ride for the day or take it super seriously just to see how amazing Tour teams are when they TTT.

Here is the course. It is almost dead flat and dead straight. Just a few turnarounds. I think at this time of the day on Sunday it will be fairly dead. It will be 3.5laps.

Brent, sorry to hear about your crash. I hope you are okay and wish you a speedy recovery. I too will have to pass due to injury. The month of June has been a bad one for Team STC accidents. Let's try not to have a repeat of it...ever!

I don't race, but wouldn't mind putting in a good effort. Any chance of a one day license for this event? Thanks.

Trev said...

Peter, thanks for your interest, do you belong to a bike club?

The cheapest way to do this would be to join the Crankmasters as a secondary member.

We need to have all riders have ABA insurance for this one.

Since I can see this route from my kitchen, I will show up sans any areo, to avoid stuffing my hole with doughnuts.
