Had to change the date to February 23rd as a scheduling conflict arose for the 16th. Apologies to everyone. Hope to see you at the event on the 23rd - AND, the Messilla Valley Circuit Race(and Girl Scout Cookies!!) on the 24th!
***NEW RULES THIS YEAR!!!***
The is the FIRST EVENT in the 12-race 2013 Butte Hill Climb Time Trial Series! Registration will open at 8:30am near the intersection of Hwy. 99 and Neal Road(look for me and the R.A.C.E.beast at the start area - a large Ford Excursion SUV with orange cones on it).
***NEW THIS YEAR - ALL OF THE HILL CLIMB TIME TRIALS WILL BE MASS-START EVENTS. WHICH MEANS, WE WILL ALL BE TAKING OFF AT THE SAME TIME. I WILL CLOSE REGISTRATION AT 9:00AM, GATHER THE RIDERS TO THE START LINE, GIVE THE INSTRUCTIONS, THEN SEND YOU ON YOUR WAY.....ALL TOGETHER! I WILL LOAD UP THE R.A.C.E.beast, THEN HEAD UP TO THE TOP OF THE HILL TO GET YOUR FINISHING TIME. YES, DRAFTING IS LEGAL - AND YOU WILL NO LONGER HAVE TO WAIT AROUND FOR YOUR START TIME IN THE COLD. IF YOU ARE LATE, NO PROBLEM - JUST RIDE AS FAST AS YOU CAN TO THE TOP!!
The race will start at 9:00am, precisely. You can be late, but your time will reflect this - I will no longer be adjusting your time based upon late starts/missed starts, etc.
The Neal Road climb is considered a Category 3 climb in the 2013 Butte Hill Climb Time Trial Series - it climbs approximately 1,300 feet over 8.1 miles. For a map of the Neal Road Uphill Time Trial course, please visit the following link:
