On behalf of Westwood Velo and the NJBA, I am pleased to announce that the Long Meadow Time Trial, held on August 1st, 2009 in Tuxedo Park, New York shall serve as the CRCA Time Trial Club Championships for members of the CRCA as well as a critical event in the NJBA TT Cup Series. Westwood Velo and the NJBA have long enjoyed our competitive relationship with our CRCA cycling counterparts and are honored to have the opportunity to help them provide a terrific club championship event for their members.

The Long Meadow Time Trial is a 14 mile course on Long Meadow Road in Tuxedo Park, New York. It is a demanding course with rolling climbs, many flat sections, some very fast technical descents, all of which push across terrific pavement in a quiet country atmosphere. Parking and the start line are located at the northern end of Long Meadow Road in the International Paper parking lot at 1422 Long Meadow Road, Tuxedo NY 10987

First rider will start at 8am. CRCA members looking to compete for their CRCA Club Championship should register in one of the 3 CRCA-specific categories. Please ensure you register in the CRCA Men’s A, CRCA Men’s B, or CRCA Women’s categories if you are racing for the CRCA Championship.

Additionally, we are offering a Team Time Trial category which shall run as the last grouping for the day. We can make no guarantees that riders racing the ITT will be able to also run the TTT though we will strive hard to ensure this can be accommodated. If we can not ensure you are back from your ITT event for the TTT, then we shall of course refund your monies. We did not have any such issues last year and do not anticipate any this year. Yet, if it is unworkable, refunds will be provided. The TTT is a maximum of 4 riders, time taken on the third wheel across the line.

Timing and scoring is managed by redundant scoring systems. Alan Atwood and his technologies serve as the primary timing systems, while time trial scoring software developed by Trade Manage Capital shall serve as a redundant backup.

Registration for the event must be done in advance. There is no day-of registration. Registration is only available on Bikereg.com.
