The first event features our tried-and-trued FLAT 10k course. In 2009 Dan Verner (PACT-DishNetwork) and Jessica Prinner (ABD) posted the fastest times on this course with a 13:53 and 15:50, respectively.
The 2010 ABD Time Trial Series features three indoor events and an outdoor Time Trial. The indoor events each feature different terrain with a flat course, rolling course and all-new “Hill Climb” course that ends with a 5 kilometer climb.
The fastest 16 men and 8 women from the Hill Climb will also receive FREE entry to an invitational indoor “Face-Off” at Prairie Path Cycles on Saturday, March 27th! The men will race two rounds of mass-start, drafting-enabled racing on the famed Morgul Bismark course and the women will blaze through one round.
Winners of the overall time trial series from each category with at least three riders will take home a CycleOps JetFluid Pro trainer! These trainers are brand-new and will only be used in the CycleOps warm-up area for the three indoor events.
Thanks to all our sponsors!
“It’s a great area for riding very hilly, but I’d say it’s the best area for training in the whole of the United States.” --Lance Armstrong on Boone and Banner Elk, NC
At an elevation of 4,000 feet our riders train and study in some of the best terrain in the country. We are minutes away from thousands of acres of national forest yielding over 500 miles of trails as well as the Blue Ridge Parkway, which lines our mountain tops with over 700 miles of paved roads. This area is truly a mountain biker and road racer’s dream with epic climbs and great descents.
Our campus sits in the shadow of Beech Mountain where Lance Armstrong renewed his passion for cycling only to win the Tour de France the very next summer. At Lees-McRae College we are passionate about our surroundings and equally excited about the development of our cycling team and the individuals that make our team.
If you are looking for an opportunity to continue to develop your riding and move forward in your education, we would like to talk to you about a place on our cycling team. We are a fully funded race team, recognized by USA Cycling and the South East Collegiate Cycling Conference. Look for us at any major collegiate events throughout the country including Mountain, Track, Cyclocross and Road national championships.
We are actively recruiting additional riders who are able to race mountain, track, cyclocross and or road. We would like to discuss this opportunity with you. Scholarships are available.
Check us out at www.lmc.edu or http://www.bobcatsports.lmc.edu/teams/index.php?sportcode=cycling We look forward to hearing from you.
