The SVBC time trial series p/b by Rocktown Racing is the resurrection of the original time trial series put on by SVBC. Everyone is welcome to come to this event. Come try to get the fastest time overall or just come out to beat your own time. Either way this should be a fun series with 3 races on the flat Dry River Rd, one on the gravel road Tilghman, and one race up the famous climb, Reddish Knob. The schedule is as follows:

The Hall (Dry River Rd. Parking)
Those who want to drive to the start of each race are welcome to. The Montezuma Church of the Brethren has been nice enough to let us use The Hall. The Hall is a white building a little past the entrance to Dry River Rd. with a gravel parking lot and a pavilion out back. There will be bathrooms available to racers. Please be considerate since access to the building is a privilege that can be revoked at any time.
**DO NOT WEAR CLEATS IN THE HALL!! PLEASE TAKE OFF CYCLING SHOES BEFORE ENTERING**
For the Reddish Knob hill climb, you can park at the Briery Branch Reservoir. There will not be bathrooms so take care of business before getting out to the race.
For the Tilghman Rd. TT, you can park in the parking lots on Hone Quarry Rd. and ride down to the Tilghman Rd. and Briery Branch Rd. intersection where we will start the race.
There will be 3 different divisions for the time trial series. The road bike, aero, and MTB classes. The road bike class is for any racer that does not have aero equipment (aero bar clip ons, helmets, full disc wheels, etc.). Any aero add-ons will force you into the aero category. The MTB category will be a Reddish Knob and Tillman Rd. only category. Feel free to ride to the top of Reddish on the MTB then bomb down on the trails after you are done.
