Registration for the March 28th Time Trial Now Open – sign up for the entire series and save some $$$:
In 2017 we resurrected the local Time Trial Series and had a great time doing it. So, we're bringing it back again!
Not sure what a time trial is?
Riders start at 30 second time intervals and complete the course as fast as possible. No drafting, no course cutting, just you against the clock. And yes, there will be snot, sweat, and the occasional tears shed when battling mind and body!
This is a low key event, great for beginners, with the goal to bring the Memphis endurance community together to challenge each other and then trade war stories over some food and drinks after.
