2012 Time Trial Series- Canceled

The plan this year was to have a Saturday morning time trial series on open dates in the regional road schedule. We thought perhaps attendance would be better than it's historically been on Wednesday evenings (12 riders average). However, securing an open date in August along with scheduling an official to be there has proven to be more difficult than we anticipated. We could've gone back to the Wednesday evening format but decided it would not be worth the time and expense this year. We will revisit hosting the series again in 2013.

Spoke-n-Sport Criterium Series

Twin Bing 'B' Race Recap

Written by: Admin

The 2012 edition of the Twin Bing Classic will be remembered for mild temperatures and the howling, gusty southwest wind that made the hard course very challenging.

The field of 54 rolled out in a neutralized formation until the race's official start at the top of the hill for their 2-lap trip.
