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 email@example.com.
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:
Stay tuned for info as it happens. Sign up for alerts to your inbox so you don’t miss a thing. In the meantime ride safe and stay safe.
The season’s final time trial gave us a good night for negative splits with a nice tailwind to start and challenging headwind on the return leg.
Thank you to Mark Thomas of LocalCycling.com for setting up the race permit, Roger Harrison of Lanterne Rouge Racing for supplying the bib numbers, and especially to all of the riders who make this series competitive and fun.
Our awesome 10K TT course in Gardner is still under some pretty hefty construction to make it even more awesome, so we will “borrow” the DeSoto course for our final race of the year.
Parking is at Riverfest Park just northwest of DeSoto.
Map it: 33440 W 79th St, DeSoto, KS 66018.
See you there!
The 2017 season opener of the 10K Time Trial series will be Thursday, April 13th. This training series will once again include coaching, tips, and Q&A. Take advantage of learning race day tactics and refreshing your knowledge at each month’s event.
Tonight’s Time Trial was a proper August heatwave and we had a few mechanicals to boot. Chris Formen was so fast his Garmin couldn’t keep up, so he went back after it when it fell off his bike. Hannah Goldberg blew a shifter but finished in a single gear like the champ she is. Nice work everyone, thanks for making it a fun night.
Thank you to Mark Thomas of LocalCycling.com for being our holder and Roger Harrison of Lanterne Rouge Racing for providing the race bibs.

Tour of Lawrence at Haskell Indian Nations University, this is a short clip of the Men’s Masters 40+ and 50+ race.
Tonight’s 10K TT produced some nice results thanks to 5-7 mph breeze rather than the usual 17+ with gusts. A very good test for our racers. Teresa and Kathy had a close race tonight while Craig cranked it out Merckx style. We finished up the night with tips on starts and negative splits.
Thank you to the racers, you make this event a great one. Thank you to Mark Thomas for holding and to Roger Harrison for supplying the race bibs.
Tonight’s Time Trial Mini-Clinic covered breathing techniques for racing. With a headwind on the return trip tonight, this technique is especially handy. For more detail, see my article on Pez Cycling News, “Breathplay: Turn Your Breathing Upside Down.”
Riders were also advised on keeping race numbers visible to officials when crossing the finish line. When you wave or sit up, the officials can’t see your number. Simply continue racing across the line so we get your race number and time recorded properly.
Thank you to Mark Thomas for being our holder and to Roger Harrison for supplying the bib numbers.
