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:

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!

See you on the course!
The sun kicked out the day’s gray skies just as our time trial got underway. We had to drill down to hundredths of a second to break a tie between Sam Swearngin and Craig Henwood. It was Craig by a gnat’s eyelash at .06 ahead. Our sole junior on tonight’s course, Gabe Schmitz, knocked off 2 minutes from last month’s time.
This month’s Mini Clinic focused on beating the heat with tips on nutrition and how to use ice socks.
A few of tonight’s racers are heading to Augusta next week for Masters Road Nationals – Andy Brown, Mike Harrison, and Scott Sifferman. Brian Bradley will be racing Tulsa Tough this Saturday. Best of luck to all of you!
Much appreciation goes out to Mark Thomas at LocalCycling.com for sponsoring the race permit, Stacey Schmitz for being our holder, Gregg Rupp for timing back-up, and Roger Harrison at Lanterne Rouge Racing for providing bib numbers and spray chalk.
Next race: July 12th.
A newly surfaced road greeted time trial racers at our season opener. We recruited a new holder so our sponsor could race, Stacey Schmitz did a great job sending riders off at the start. The Mini-Clinic continues with skills and technique you can use to improve your riding.
Remember that you can re-use your race number (and pins) for these races. Chuck Procner brought his bib from last season. Way to recycle, Chuck! Also, you only need one Release Form for the entire season, so if you filled one out last night you’re set for this series. Saving the planet one waiver at a time.
Our first time trial of the season brings us a newly surfaced course. Thursday, May 10th kicks off this year’s series. Build your fitness, test yourself, and tune up for your weekend racing.

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!
