Time Trial Series
Club Invitational Events
These are private, invitational only events that are often held on holidays, such as Memorial Day, Labor Day, Black Friday, and between Christmas and New Years. Others may be held at various times. The Labor Day race is a special Championship event called the “Cowbell Classic”.
Some of these races are free, but we will have optional raffle tickets (via donation). All may race but to be eligible for prizes, the minimum donation is $20. Riders also get an additional ticket for each rider they beat in their class. This gives all riders a chance to win a prize, weighted based upon their performance.
Invitations to closed events are sent via our Time Trial Facebook group. If you or your group are interested in an invitation to any of these events, please join the group or Contact Us with information about you or your group.
