time trial: A time trial is a race by
individual riders who shoot off of a ramp every 30 seconds to test their
skills with high speed velocity riding.
Friday evening (June 12, 2015) will be our kick-off event for Le Tour de Mont
Pleasant on Central Michigan University's campus (Race Central located at CME-Mitsuba Corporation at 2945 Three Leaves Dr., Mt. Pleasant) where cyclists of all different categories will
be racing against themselves as they sprint for time in the "Time
Trial." This course is approximately 1.97 miles long and will allow
cyclists to gear up for a weekend full of competitive racing.
TIME TRIAL BIKES WILL NOT BE ALLOWED FOR THIS RACE!
"The Chief Referee upon review of the
course for Friday night's prologue time trial, has decided that in
addition to the already communicated "no Time Trial only bikes", to also
restrict bikes to those defined in rule 1M1(g) as "mass start bicycles".
This restricts bicycles in the Friday Time Trial to "...a bicycle that
is legal in all events within the road discipline...rather than a
bicycle that is restricted to particular events. As an example, a
bicycle with handlebars offering forearm support is not a mass start
bicycle." In other words, no clip on bars will be allowed.
bikes will be much safer and more effective on this course. The promoter
is calling Friday's Time Trial a demonstration event, and we want to
keep it in that spirit."
