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 Comfort Inn & Suites Hotel and Conference Center at 2424 S. Mission, Mt. Pleasant MI 48858. The Start/Finish line will be located next to 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.
"Mass start 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."

1. No Disc Wheels Allowed.
2. No Aero Bars Allowed.
3. TT Helmets are okay.
