Thanks for coming out to the Winter TT Series!  It was a lot of fun and we ended on a high note with warm, sunny weather for the last race.  Thanks to UpWright Moving, Rouler Sportswear, The Clean Machine, and Crank Arm Brewing for the prizes and support for TORC Racing!

Schedule and Timing:
Bib pickup/Sign-in begins at 10 AM at each race site
Race Start: 11:00 AM for the first racer, subsequent racers will be staged in a minimum of 1-minute intervals.  Racers will do their laps by first come, first serve.  The last racer must start their lap by 1:00 PM.  Winners will be announced by 2:15 PM.

Race Course:
For Crabtree: The route will be 3 miles and 0.6 miles for the kids short loop. It will include the new ETD/Native Trail sections (Loop 3/4/E).
The shorter kids loop is  for those too young to do a full 3 miles- this will be starting from the double track-left on Connector A, left to Connector B and back onto the double track (~0.6 miles).

The route for Briar Chapel is 4.43 miles (roughly).

The route for RTP is 3.3 miles (roughly), small kids can do just the first loop which is at the start (~1/4 mile long).

Race Points:
Each participant will garner points for the races they complete: the more racers in your category, the more points you get where you place (i.e. if there are 15 racers in your category and you place 15th, you get 15 points, 14th- you get 14 points, etc.).  If you decide to switch categories between races, we will re-assign your rank and determine your new points minus 1 point for the hassle (at the same time, those who entered the category prior will not lose their points with the new rankings). We also reserve the right to combine categories if there are fewer than 3 racers in a category.

Series Awards:
To be eligible for a series award, you have to attend at least 3 of the races.  We’ve got sweet prizes from our sponsors for all category winners plus first place gets the coveted TORC cup.  We are working hard to provide prizes (gift cards/swag) at least 3-deep.  First place in each category will receive a custom jersey from Rouler Sportswear.  And a big thanks to UpWright Moving for supporting the TORC races!

    is the Saturday time trial at Lake Crabtree still on?

  3. Steve Baker says:

    just saw the update/reschedule for Crabtree to 2/13/2016

  4. phil says:

    so younger juniors do a longer loop? (“Juniors 11-14: Kids Long Loop
    Juniors 15-18: Kids Short Loop (1 mile or less)”)

  5. nick says:

    do you have to be a torc member to participate?

    • RaceDirector says:

      No, you do not have to be a TORC member to participate- but we do offer a discount if you are a member or become a member!

  6. Chase says:

    Really important technical question: Can we get a T-shirt with that awesome beaver logo on it for the 2017 series?

  7. Marissa says:

    My son turns 13 in March 2017. Does he race in the Juniors 13-17 or in the kids 12 and under? I also have an 11 y.o. – Can he race Juniors if he wants? Will the 12 and Under be allowed to do the full course if they are able?

    • RaceDirector says:

      Yes, he races Juniors 13-17. Your 11 YO can also race Junior- just select that category. We can be flexible on allowing the 12 and under to do the full course.

    • RaceDirector says:

      He would race Juniors 13-17 if he turns 13 this year. Your 11 yo can do the full course if they are able- I just need to know beforehand.

  8. Lee says:

    Hi all – winter time trial happening tomorrow at Crabtree?

  9. Joe Ma says:

    Do you know what time you guys will start setting up? Planning to get to Crabtree at 8 for an early ride. Would hate to run into sections that are roped off for the race

    • RaceDirector says:

      Sorry for the delay in responding: we try not to rope any sections off or at least make it easy for you to ride under.

  10. Did anyone run Strava this morning for the time trial? Looking for exact mileage for the route today for comparison purposes to some upcoming NICA rides. Thanks.
