No clinic this week.
Ride description and map
A shorter route to make sure were back before the sun sets. We will be taking in the Col du Watson twice as well as Watsonberg which should make it pretty punchy. There is a good chance of some showers in the afternoon and evening the call will be made by 5:30.
The 4th and final time trial of the season is this week, with first rider starting at 7:00pm!
For 2017: Due to the ongoing road closure on 4th Line, we will be using the same course as last year, on 6th Line East.
Time trials are a great way to test your fitness. It is a race against yourself and the clock. Riders start at 1 minute intervals and the challenge is to try to catch the rider ahead of you and not to be caught by the rider behind you! No drafting is allowed.
We use the same course for each of the 4 TT events allowing you to measure your training progression throughout the season.
The course is 16.7km long, an out-and-back route on the rolling hills of Sixth Line East just north of County Road 51 (road to Ariss)
- maintain a steady power output and heart rate throughout the event
- have a smooth, regular pedalling technique
- position yourself to be extremely aerodynamic
- discipline yourself to operate just below your anaerobic threshold until near the end of the course.
- please exercise caution during the TT, especially at the turn around, as the roads are open and vehicles can be expected
- please remember that while waiting for your start to not obstruct traffic
- please remember to bring your club membership card.
