The Texas Time Trials
September 22, 2016 - September 24, 2016
The Texas Time Trials would like to extend a warm, Texas-sized invitation to all of y’all. Whether you are an Ultra Racer, Randonneur or a rider wanting to test your abilities against the clock, we have an event for you. The Texas Time Trials is actually five events in one. The Tejas 500, our longest event, will have (3) different start times, the 48-Hour start, Thursday 6:00 pm, then a 42-hour start (6 hours later) at Midnight and also a 36-hour start at 6:00 am Friday. The object is to have all the riders and teams finish about the same time for dinner and the Awards Bash Saturday evening.
The “Iron Butt” 24-Hour Time Trial will start Friday evening at 5:00 pm. The “Tin Butt” 12-Hour Challenge will start on Saturday morning at 6:00 am. The 6-Hour Shoot-Out will begin Saturday at 11:00 am, followed by The 26.5 mile Sprint at 3:00 pm. The staggered start times make for an exciting event injecting new riders onto the course. This introduction of new riders to the course adds to the excitement of each event and will work to keep riders already out on the course fired-up. All events will end in time for the Awards Ceremony. The Awards Ceremony is a fun place to meet other riders, eat and pick up trophies. With riders from most of the states in the USA and from other countries, the Awards Bash was also an unbelievable reunion (see past rider list on website) of old and new friends.
