Up next - 40 k TT - August 13th

Lots of racing left this season. Coming up is a 40 k ITT in Springbank. It is on a 20 km loop that the A and B cats will do twice, the C's will do once. Each loop has 7 safe right turns and then one u turn then go out and repeat the first loop. Clockwise of course except the u turn will put you in a time warp black hole spiral for about 4 seconds. Let me know if it felt like an eternity.

Extra points for any A under 60 minutes, and any B under 65 minutes. The women can elect to do 20 k or 40 k.

As usual we need some volunteers, a few people have already offered, thank you very much. Racing will get underway as close to 6:30 PM as possible. Sign on will be at the finish line, which is on Township 245 by the little industrial park/crit course near Callaway Park. There is lots of parking in that area. I will be bringing everyone south from the finish line about 800 m to near the Springbank Park for all Seasons to start the race so that the course measures 40 k. Also note that the course takes in Huggard Road, we will try to have volunteers on most of the corners but you need to know the route for yourself. I'm in cat B and did the 40 k in 1:14 a few weeks ago, not too hard for the other B's to beat.

I can volunteer if needed.

I think that would be good, not many volunteers so far. Thanks Dan.

Just a little concerned about the psychological impact of the Cs only doing 20 k.
Heck ... even the women can elect to do 40 k. Big blow to the machismo if we only get a half distance ....
Any option to do 2 laps.? Maybe time both and take the faster of the two.

Yes I was thinking about that, the Cs can also go long
