July TNTT Results

Time trialists rolled across the finish line last night in strong form. Alan Barton dug deep to best the field and take top honors. But gaps were tight as everyone fought to beat the clock.

  • Alan Barton @ 28:50 (22.47mph)
  • Jimmy Prestwood @ 29:08 (22.24mph)
  • Nic Koziolek @ 29:46 (21.77mph)
  • Stacy Norman @ 31:16 (20.72mph)
  • Bob Goodman @ 32:08 (20.17mph)

And not to go home empty handed, Rick Brock of Trek Auburn saw finishers generously greeted with store credit.

August 14th will be the final TNTT of the 2018 summer series. The course will be Mrs James Road in North Auburn. It'll be a 6mile out-n-back. I know you've all ridden it. And I know you all think you're fast on it. So circle the 8/14 on your calendars and come out to prove it!

June's Tuesday Night Time Trial Results

A hot and humid evening greeted 4 eager time trialists bent on cheating the clock. Out and back, County Road 188 is fast if your bike doesn't melt under the hot and humid evening sun.

Jimmy Prestwood was the first to slip out of the haze, finishing the 7.6 mile course in 19:42 and at 23.15 mph.

Fighting for 2nd and 3rd, Bruno Ulrich bested Tim McDonald in 22 minutes, 11 seconds (20.56 mph). Tim in 3rd at 22:24 (20.36 mph).

Not to be beaten by the course or the heat Todd White carried the lanterne rouge across the finish line in 29:05 and 15.68 mph.

You missed it?

No worries. The monthly TNTT series continues on July 10th. Start Line: 2837 Oak Bowery Rd, Opelika (power substation at bottom of dead cat hill). Registration opens at 6p; first rider off at 6:30p. Free for eacc members; $5 for guests.

Keep an ear out for course details.

TNTT coming back...

The Tuesday Night Time Trial (TNTT) series is sneaking back in 2018. Details are fluid but starting to emerge.

Expect a one-a-month event across the summer. Each event targeting a different course and therefore TT skillset. Details & courses are still being finalized but think about a hill climb, a traditional TT, a team TT, a sprint TT... The idea is to highlight different courses/routes in the area, and offer some cycling skill variety.

Up first will be a Chewacla Hill Climb - May 15 @ Chewacla SP. Park fees apply. Registration opens at 6p. First rider off at 6:30p.

As in past years the TNTT is an EACC members event - club insurance requires participants to be EACC members. And, as in past TNTTs, we'll offer a $5/event EACC membership plan. So join EACC outright for $20/individual, $30/family, or in $5/ride installments. Memberships can be purchased online, or by bringing/mailing a membership form.

2013 Series Finally

EACC’s 2013 Tuesday Night Time Trial wrapped up last night.  If you missed it, you missed a beautiful evening with some great folks.  Last night’s results are below with the full series results attached here.  Also I must thank Clarence, Mike & Angela, Dave Kerr, Mike Stone, and everyone else that came out to help.  None of this would have been possible without your help.  And of course thank you to all the riders.  Clarence might pass as a traffic engineer with his safety vest, but the rest of us volunteers would look silly standing by the side of the road without you racing.

I depleted my literary reserves last week.  This week Vicky smoked all the women and I beat all the other men. 

There are 2 weeks left in the season, and it only takes once to beat your personal best.  Our last TT of the summer will be August 27th.  On that night we’ll see a return of the two person team time trials.  If you prefer suffering in pairs that will be your last shot this year.  If you’d rather sweat it out alone we’ll be there for you too.

TNTT Results - 8/6/2013

Two brave souls emerged from the steam of a sub-tropical Tuesday night.  A mixed breed of superior human endurance and technologic advancement, the two challenged what is the Tuesday Night Time Trial.  Elements be dammed, they disposed any common wisdom in their quest for a higher calling, a higher purpose.  As the clock ticked over each arduous second, one man emerged on the horizon… then another.  One chasing another through an Amazonian cauldron of heat and oppression.  Two mortals came dressed for battle, faced the night, and rose up to the gantlet, proving to themselves and those brave enough to witness their feat that man and machine, working as one, can achieve nirvana.

We then ate popsicles.

A fantastic night yesterday with our biggest crowd this year!  In addition to an Auburn crew, we had the Lagrange crew and a Montgomery crew.  Its great to see everyone playing on their bikes.  If you’re not doing anything Tuesday nights, get on your bike and ride.  It doesn’t matter if your helmet last saw daylight in the mid-80s and your bike creaks going down the road.  We want you to come out and have fun.  If you’re fast or slow, fit or trying to get fit, come ride – you’ll have fun.

A brief, light drizzle didn’t keep 6 die-hard cyclists away.  See last night’s results below and results from the full series are here.

 Next week will be our two person team time trials.  Again, for those who don’t know here’s how it works:  teams of 2 will start at 2 minute intervals and can work together across the course.  The clock stops when the 2nd rider crosses the finish.  Pick your own team, bring a ringer, show up and we’ll match you with someone, or ride solo.  We don’t care, we just want to have a good time.  Disclaimer: we do care.  Both riders have to be under their own power, have to complete the course, and wear helmets.

Heat and humidity isn’t slowing anyone down.  All you Auburn cats keep an eye out on the folks from LaGrange, they’re posting some fast times.  And Jay, I hope you’re taking notice – Robert Black’s making steady progress on your course record.  See last night’s results below and series results here.

Back by popular demand: in 2 weeks (June 25th) we’ll bring back the team TT.  For those who don’t know here’s how it works:  teams of 2 will start at 2 minute intervals and can work together across the course.  The clock stops when the 2nd rider crosses the finish.  Pick your own team, bring a ringer, show up and we’ll match you, or ride solo.  We don’t care, we just want to have a good time.  Disclaimer: we do care.  Both riders have to be under their own power, have to complete the course, and wear helmets.
