Potsdam Time Trial Tonight in Raymondville

Tonight is the first TT of the year!  We had to cancel the last one due to weather.  Ok Ok so officially this TT is called the Potsdam Time Trial (USA-C event permit- 2011-603), but it is in Raymondville.  TT begins at 6pm (as in ready to ride the course for time at 6pm).  You can park in the dirt lot across from the gas station or in the gas station itself.

Course-  It is a 10 mile TT.  The loop is just over 10 miles so the start/finish line will be different, this will be pointed out and marked.  The course is all right hand turns, quiet roads/big shoulders (on busier roads).  Also as flat as we could make it, a classic north country TT course so many of you know it already.  Riders will be sent out at 1 minute intervals. 

Registration-  Cost of the event is $5 per rider.  If you are a paid member of Team Wear On Earth then it is free for you to participate.  Everyone else it is $5 (for insurance only, we are actually loosing money on this but want to keep cost low).  There is a waiver that you must sign so please come early to fill it out.  Juniors always participate for free. We will have team membership forms at the event as well if you want to join the great club.  Feel free to spread the word, all are welcome. 

Besides that I hope to see everyone nice and early.  I would recommend arriving at 5pm so you can register and warm up.   This is a race against the clock so come on out no matter what shape you are in.  These events are great motivators as we move through the summer and you see your TT times drop.  Additionally a group of us will be meeting up afterwards for dinner if you care to join us.
