New 4-race BCC Time Trial Series
Rather than a weekly or bi-weekly series, in 2020 there will be 4 BCC Time Trials. These would take place at 7:00pm on:
May 14, 2020
June 25, 2020
July 16, 2020
August, 20, 2020
Handicap system: There’s no excuse not to participate!
The new TT races allow riders of various fitness levels compete with faster riders. This is achieved by assigning a “handicap”- which is a scaled time bonus based on age and type of bike used.
With the handicap, now anyone could win a BCC TT race! Example: A female rider who is age 50 on a normal road bike has the opportunity, though a handicap, to compete on a level playing field with a 30 year old male racer on a full TT bike!
NOTE THAT 16 & UNDER, ALL WOMEN, and ANYONE 40 YEARS & OLDER GET A TIME HANDICAP. Age 40+ women get an extra time handicap.
Awards and prizes:
We’re excited to offer some new incentives to riders who wish to participate in the TT series. We will track the points of all racers through the 4 race series. One of the races – presumably one that a racer has not attended, or has had a poor result and/or low point score – will be dropped. Thus, the best times for 3 races of each regular attendee will be tallied.
At the final race, the man and woman with:
The best handicapped times for the series with a TT bike. Note that a road bike becomes a TT bike if aero bars are installed.
The best Eddy Merckx (no TT bike) handicapped times for the series
The best overall (non-handicapped) times for the series either TT or regular road bike…i.e. whoever had the best time regardless of age, sex or bike.
shall receive a prize!
Winners get a Winner’s trophy, provided by ValueTrend Wealth Management. We’ll also give every participant who does 3 races some free bootie, courtesy of Trek Bike Store, Barrie
