Svein Tuft ( yes UCI World Team Mitchelton-Scott Svein ) is our Course Record holder.
Yes - Ironman winners Dave Kirk and Heather & Trevor Wurtele have raced and race our course. Doesn't mean you need the flash kit & gear. What you do need is a good working road bike and a healthy big smile to best yourself vs the clock.
Many many persons roll their Road Bike for the EM distinction in results ( Eddy Merckx started it all way back when to show that a roadie can win TTs ).
While every racer is started 30 seconds apart - the variety of racers is amazing.
We have many solo junkies , the 2 person split ( one races 8kms out - the other 8 kms back ), and the ever increasing popular 2 person draft monkeys.
Since 1985 - racers of ALL ages have been rolling the Old Vernon Rd course. An 8km out & back course with 2 professional flaggers & ~ 231 meter vertical gain. The race of truth.
Start / Finish a snowball's throw from Old Vernon Rd & Norris Rd. Host party will normally park on West side of Norris Rd for sign-up and placing.
Warm up is anywhere along Norris / Acland.
DO NOT park in Coca Cola parking lot - they have a fun police patrol.
Let the Fat Kid know you're rolling unique : fixie, 2 person split, 2 person draft monkeys - AND if you're rolling cowboy ( sans tube/pump etc ).
We'll ensure you're sized into proper results category AND that we don't shut down till all racers are in. Hence - we send out SARS for flatted/mechanicals
