Time Trial

Time Trial

Description
Starting off at minute intervals your goal is to complete the 10 mile course as quickly as possible.

You can turn up and compete in the odd Time Trial but if you compete in sufficient events and score highly enough then you could be crowned either men or ladies DTC Time Trial Champion.

These training sessions are unfortunately not open to non-club members.

Timekeeping

Time Trial League
There will be a men's and women's league.  Points will be awarded: 10 for first, 8 for second 6 for third and then 5,4,3,2, and 1 for 8th.  Your best 4 results from the 10 events will count to your final score.  At the end of the 10 events the league winner will be the person with the highest score.  If there should be two or more people with the same score then the champion will be determined by who won most head to head encounters.

Results
These can be found by clicking here or visiting the Webscorer website.

Schedule
Registration takes place in the Cricket Pavilion from 18:30 on Broomhills Lane Playing Fields, which is just off Main Street Repton (about 400 meters from the start line) - postciode DE65 6FS. 

You then make your way to the start with the first rider starting promptly at 18:50. Please queue in signal file and ensure that you do not block any driveway. There are no toilets at the start line so please use the facilities at the Cricket Pavillion.

You will be set off at predetermined intervals, ride the course at all times complying with the highway code and as you cross the finish line please shout your number to assist the timekeepers.

If you have a GPS device and upload your data to Strava or Strava on your smart phone then there is a DTC TT segment which is a great backup for the timekeepers.  Link below is to the segment and also shows the course:

Once you have completed your ride please make your way back to the Broomhills Playing Fields to return your number and wait here for your results.  No dangerous 'u' turns in the road or congregating at the time keep please.  It is very off putting for riders to hang around the time keeper whilst there are other riders still coming in - failure to comply may mean a 30 second penalty!
