You’ve spent the past few months on our rain bikes, trainers and/or Zwifting. Well now it’s time to answer the question of fitness with the Race of Truth. Are you ready for the race season? How does your fitness stack up in the real world? Can you spin to win, or will you be a gear masher?
The Taco Time NW Cycling Team is pleased to provide you the forum to answer these questions, with our annual beginning-of-the-season Icebreaker Time Trial.
A 10 mile out-and-back, on Green Valley Road, near Flaming Geyser State Park, between Black Diamond and Auburn. The start, and finish, line is at the corner of Green Valley Rd and 128th.
The event may be contested using any equipment allowed by USAC regulations for time trials. So bring out your time trial bikes, your aero bar extenders, aero helmets, and deep wheels!
Both a USAC license and a WSBA number are required. You can purchase a one-day USAC license when registering for the event. WSBA rental numbers will be available on the day of the race; a $5 refundable deposit is required.
Registration is $26 for Seniors and Masters, $15 for Juniors, and $32 for tandems (covers both riders).
Preregistration is required. There will be absolutely no day-of registration.
