The Time Trial series is FREE for Greenville Spinners Members. You must be a Spinners member to participate. You can sign up online at Join The Spinners, or you can sign up at the event site.
For each event, registration begins at 5 p.m. at the registration tent at the SCTAC Spinners parking area. The address is 642 Perimeter Road, Greenville, SC 29605. The first rider begins at 6:01 p.m. and each other leaves at 1-minute intervals.
The course is a 10-mile, out-and-back route. The start/finish line will be located at the Spinners parking area. It will start in a clockwise direction out to (just before) Echelon Road where riders will do a U-turn and return to the start/finish line. The course is a rolling course on perimeter road that passes the golf course as well as climbs (and descends) 3M hill. There is new pavement on 100 percent of the course. Come out and enjoy it!
For 2016, the series will award prizes to the top 3 overall point earners in each category. Each race will award 5 points for 1st place, 4 points for 2nd, 3 points for 3rd, 2 points for 4th and 1 point for 5th. Awards will be handed out at the conclusion of the August race.
The four dates for the events (all Thursdays) are: May 12, June 9, July 28 and August 18. We WILL have a rain date if we have to cancel. Cancellations will be made by 3 p.m. on the original race date and the rain date will be one week following.
