It’s official, it’s definitive, and it’s extremely disappointing that we will not host a live 10K Time Trial this year. We plan to resume the series in 2021. Thank you all for your support throughout this Covid-19 insanity. Ride your bikes, stay safe, and as Bill and Ted so eloquently stated, “Be excellent to each other.”

Planning for the 10K TT series this year has been interesting to say the least. In conversations with USA Cycling, early summer racing is unlikely. As in my previous post, we’re still hopeful we’ll race at some point. Once we have the permit we can head to Gardner. I’ll keep you posted here. Also follow on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
In the meantime, contact me if you have questions. Keep riding and stay safe!
If you need anything, the usual items are in stock including PR Lotion and SuperFeet insoles. 913-602-0836 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 2020 season of 10K Time Trial Series is upon us in this crazy, confusing, and somewhat scary time. But have no fear, a series is in the works! As always, I’m working with Mark Thomas of LocalCycling.com as the permit sponsor.
We will plan to start the season on June 11th since we are not able to permit a race in May as usual. The flyer will be posted as soon as we can get it approved by USA Cycling.
This year’s 10K TT series schedule:

“T-storms” is not one of the T’s we had planned. Tonight the weather wins, no race. Thank you all for another fun 10K Time Trial season!
Mother Nature showed our time trial some love once again by clearing the rain so we could race. Congratulations to Chris Formen who had tonight’s top time. Another congrats goes to Kypton O’Neal who placed 4th at USA Triathlon Youth & Junior National Championships last week. Scott “The Judge” Sifferman, a frequent 10K TT’er, won the silver medal at USA Cycling’s Masters Road National Championships. Way to go guys!
Next race: September 12th
Weather is looking good! There is a perfect little window of clearing skies for tonight’s Time Trial. No rain at the present. See you there!
Thursday’s TT may bring rain, shine, or a crazy Kansas combo. Most of the time the rains pass around that area and we have clear roads. Our main concern is lightning since the forecast is for T-storms rather than just plain ol’ rain. Keep watch here or on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for the latest updates.
A perfect summer evening greeted our 10K TT racers for race #3 of 5 in this year’s series. “The Judge” is enjoying his comeback and had the top time tonight. Nice work, Scott!
Remember that you can re-use your bib for all races in this TT series. Safety pins, too. Race bibs were donated by Roger Harrison of Lanterne Rouge Racing.
Thank you to all of the racers for a fun and competitive event. Thank you to David Anderson for being our holder, Bob Ades for whip and timing back-up, and permit sponsor Mark Thomas of LocalCycling.com.
Tonight’s time trial saw athletes of various disciplines honing skills covering road cycling, triathlon, and cyclocross. This is the glory of the Time Trial, one event serves many purposes.
We had a tie down to the hundredths between Teresa Jarzemkoski and Chuck Procner. Check out their times below.
Thank you to everyone who raced! Thank you to David Conrad for being our holder and sweeper, and to permit sponsor Mark Thomas of LocalCycling.com.
See you next month!
The season opener of the 10K TT was chilly enough to bring out the penguins and winter gear. Kevin Rose had the fastest time of the night at 14:07.
Thank you to Dave Anderson and David Conrad for serving as tonight’s holders, Bob Ades for finish line assistance, and Mark Thomas of LocalCycling.com as permit sponsor.
Since this is a “training event” by rule, results list is in order but not by time. Youngest to oldest but ages will remain their secret.
