Provincial ITT – Schoenwiese Schleife & ABES grossen Preise

Below is a re-post from the OCC website. I’m thinking about going out there on Sunday to see how I would do in the “grossen Preise”. I think I could manage about 30kph for 10K which should land me securely in last spot. Anyone else up for it?

Olympia Cycling Club, in partnership with the Altona Bicycle Enthusiast Society, is hosting the provincial individual time trial championships on Sunday, August 5th, 2012 in Gretna, Manitoba. A separate, non-championship time trial (the ABES “grossen Preise”) will follow the provincial medal race for all citizen racers and non-licensed riders – this is your chance to see how you stack up against the top riders in the province (or to enjoy a personal challenge on a beautiful course, whichever way you care to look at it).

Early details are below. A complete race bible is coming soon!

Date: Sunday August 5th

Time: Registration and Sign-in – 12 p.m.-1 p.m., racing starts at 1:30 p.m.

Course: Out and back on PR243, a loop or “Schleife” to Schoenwiese, MB and back. Smooth asphalt with paved shoulder. Hunting ground for your personal best average speed!

Distances (subject to change):

Elite/U23 men – 36.5km
Elite/U23 Women, Junior & Master Men – 22.8km
Junior & Master Women, U17, U15 – 16.4km

  1. Thanks to Ian Hall and the Abe’s and MCA for a well organized and fun event! MIT was represented by Merle, Pete, and Ron. Pete rode out to the event, did the ITT, and rode back home! Official results should be on the MCA website soon. In the ABE’s Grand Prix open event, Merle and RJ sewed up the number 1 & 2 spots in the age 50+ category (which is to say that there were only two people in that category). However, age apparently was irrelevant to Merle as he was the overall winner of the men’s category – way to go!
