NEW FOR 2012!
This will be a shorter version of the 2 Hill Climb Time Trial Series that we have each year.....and will include some old favorites, with a few minor/modest changes to the courses....to try something new/different. The changes to the courses may include new starting and/or finishing locations to some of the old courses that we utilize in the other Series. This is a GREAT series to get out there on those climbs this summer - and get ready for those hilly summer & fall centuries/gran fondos!
Courses in this Series will include(courses will be longer than our usual courses):
Honey Run Road
Table Mountain(Wildflower Side)
Each Time Trial will be given a point value based upon the length and elevation gain of the course. The harder/longer the course, the higher the point value. The rider with the most points at the end of the Series will win their respective Categories. ALSO, every rider who finishes an event gets an additional 3-points......and, if conditions warrant(excessive heat, rain, wind, etc.), we will award "misery" points as well.
Categories included in this Series include - but are not limited to:
Category "A" - Advanced & Intermediate Riders
Category "B" - Intermediate & Novice Riders
Category "C" - Novice Riders & Slower Climbers(like me!)
Masters 50+ Category
Juniors Category(under the age of 16)
Trophies and awards will be given to the winners and placers in each of the respective categories.
Results will be posted within 24 hours after the completion of each event, and the Current Overall Standings can be found by clicking on "2012 Summer Summit Series" under our "SERIES" tab at the top of this page.
Due to the summer heat, registration for these races will open at 7:15am - with the 1st rider taking off at 8:01am. As usual, we will go in 1-minute intervals per rider. So, the 1st rider starts at 8:01am......2nd rider starts at 8:02am.......3rd rider starts at 8:03am......and so on. Water will be provided at each event, and I usually have tools & tubes with me if you need them.
***1 or 2 Volunteers will be needed at EACH event. If you would like to volunteer, just shoot me an e-mail at ChicoCyclist@gmail.com. You can even race too - just be the last rider to start and you will be good-to-go! You will get an additional 3-point bonus in the race, as well as my undying gratitude!! :)
