• Time Trial and Hill Climb will alternate each week for a total of four weeks starting October 10, 2016

• The race is in not-real time.  In other words, you race over the segment on your own time during the schedule week.

• You can race over the segment as many times as you would like…your best time will show up on the Leader Board

• We will filter the Leader board for Club Members only as well as by the date period raced.  We can also separate men and women.
