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.
The OBRC Time Trials is 37 years young. Yes it's racing - you racing yourself and your PR.
Without the perpetual support of everyday volunteers - this race wouldn't have lasted. Without the financial support of S.P. Interiors - it wouldn't have occurred the past 5 ( not counting the Covid shutdown ). #cobra_timetrial, #kcu_timetrials, #spimteriors_timetrials
