New for 2014 we are running an Individual Time Trail (ITT) championship

When: Sunday 7th December 2014. Sign on from 7am, ITT'ing from 8am

Where: This will be run using monthly time trial at which is located at Peats Ridge

Distance: 25k

Price: $25 for licensed riders; $ 30 for unlicensed (inc. sportif ; enduro and audax) – according to CA/NSW regs ....; $15 juniors (under 18)

License: Silver license OK, you do not need a race license

How the championship works: ATTA have a handicap calculation based on your age and gender and publish this with the results. We will rank the results based on ATTA's handicap system. An example of the results is , the handicap is the column "standard time", which shows a figure as +ve time or -ve time as the differential from ATTA's age/gender timings. But no need to indulged with a lot of boring maths, I'll be doing that to publish the DHBC results.

More important than a championship: Is that its about having some fun, its also a great opportunity for those who are yet to race as you don't need a race license and you don't ride near other riders

Equipment: Your standard road bike will be fine. There's no need to get a whole bunch of equipment, simply ride the bike you already have

Pie in the Sky: As you are aware, a cultural component of cycling is the coffee shop afterwards, for this event we will use Pie in the Sky

PB challenge: For those who have previously done an ITT at Calga, in addition to the handicap championship above, we have a challenge to see who can beat there personal best by the most

Any questions, drop a post here

Hi Mike

Timing could be better!! This is slam bang in the middle of the silly season. While it is a great prerogative - and thanks for getting it together, we perhaps should be running this in the middle of the road season near the TTT around June/July??

Good luck!

I've updated the pricing in the original post;
$25 race license
$30 silver license
$15 juniors

Taken the suggestion of June/July on board as potential dates for 2015 champs, if this year is popular

I haven't done this (or ridden there) before so excuse my ignorance, but is this an 'out & back TT?

Cheers,
Steve.

I've heard a lot about this course but never done it.

1. We are running the championship using ATTA facilities. ATTA will be doing all marshaling and timing.

2. I think you are asking me about safety. The road is not closed but doesn't get a lot of traffic. Its out and back with a marshal on the turnaround point who will stop the car is there is one. I've been there about 6 times and are yet to strike an issue with a fossil powered device.

3. First rider is out at 8am and are staggered at 1 minute intervals last rider is out at 10am but usually earlier. Time slot is allocated when you sign up, you can take the earliest available or a later one. If you need to be finished early, then turn up early. How many DHBC riders?, please start a list. If we get enough then ATTA will provide us a 9am block spot.

4. Its a normal ATTA event, however ATTA will provide a DHBC printout which we can take to Pie in Sky and use for awards. Only DHBC riders are elgible for the DHBC championship

5. I'm guessing we will arrive at Pie in the Sky at about 10.30 [but I haven't taken my socks and shoes off to do the maths]

Looking like another week of showers and storms so I'm going to base my decision on the forecast on the day. If it looks like it'll be crummy in the afternoon, I'll head to Waterfall. If it's crummy in the morning, TT. And if it's crummy start to finish, Civilization V and maybe the trainer if I can stand to look at the damned thing.

Hang on, I'm getting this confused with something else, it's in the morning too! Oops!

OK so nuts to Waterfall, now I need to find a backup afternoon plan.

I raced RBCC today instead, I need some base miles tomorrow so I'm out as well. Sorry for blowing hot and cold on this one. I hate trying to plan around this weather.

The weather has gone dicey and the time slot isn't working for many, so I'm cancelling. We can work out something better for 2015

Looks like I was the only DHBC rider there today, I did a PB by 18 secs. (41:59). Conditions were very humid by the time I set off at 9.15. Struggle street on the way out but saved it coming back :-)

Since a PB results in a free entry the following month, I will be going back in Jan to do it all again. The 25km course is $25 - $1 per km to smash yourself - I must be crazy.


Amy.

Weather turned out pretty good for it. Mike sent me a text the night before saying it was off, so I took his word for it. Would of liked to do it still, as this race is my regular.
Congrats Amy on your PB. I'll be down in January, my ride should be fixed by then too.
