    • I have been working with them and as of today have confirmation that there will be a race. Registration will be open by the end of the day tomorrow.

  1. So many schedule changes and no September races…next year I’ll try to be in phase and compete. John Marshall

    • There have been a lot of changes this year. Its been hard for some races to get the help they need to be able to hold the races they want, not to mention expense. Next year will be better as we knew that this year was going to be tough going in.

    • HI there,

      At this point I am looking to nail down all the dates for 2014 by the middle of January. After that I will build the BikeReg site so we can open registration, I hope by the early February.

    • Its coming along. I will be posting some dates today and this weekend. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you I’ve been very busy.

      Derek

    • I will do so. Are you using Eric from Back 40 Timing? He has agreed to doour races this year and a good cost for everyone. If you are using him please make sure that he is aware that your part of the series. Also I will let him know from our end.

    • We have been looking at having a youth division but have not been able to put it together as of yet. We do encourage people of all ages and experience to race in our Merckx division, which allows people to ride any bike as long as its not a TT or Tri bike. As the series moves forward we do hope to have some races carry a youth division.

  2. Well the reason I wonder is because I am 12 and into cycling , I have done 70 miles in the Dempsey challenge and also I have done other rides. I do have a road bike. My family wanted me to start getting into time trials.

    • Hi Caleb,

      I think that the METTS would be a great place to start. We have lots of great racers who are all very into cycling and lending a hand to those new to racing. There is even some coaches that race with us, if you want to meet them let me know and I can do that. We offer a Merckx division which is for people who use a regular road bike with not fancy wheels, helmets, etc… there are kids your age that race in that division. We would be glad to welcome you to our events they are great fun!

  3. I am interested in participating in some of the bike races coming up this summer. It is my first time doing so and have a couple questions. Firstly, I have clip in pedals on my Trek road bike and just wear the usual biking gear. Which division would I be in since there are two? Also, I do not have any cycling license and will probably be doing at least 3 races. What’s my best option as to obtaining one if it’s required?

    • Hi there Melissa,

      First of all welcome to our series I think that you’ll find your time with us fun. I would suggest that you enter as a Merckx racer. This division is one for people that don’t have all the aero equipment and its a good place to start. As for license, most of the races in our series don’t require that you have one and if they do you can get one that day. If you have any other questions please let me know.

      Best Regards,
      Derek

  4. Hi,
    I am a triathlete and very interested in racing in your time trials. I was wondering if all events are sanctioned by USA Cycling? How many athletes usually turn out? Thank you for your time.

    Kind Regards,
    Robin Sandos

    • Hi there Robin,

      Not all of our races are sanctioned by USA Cycling as it is a very expensive proposition, however there are a couple. As for the number of racers the average is around 50 with a couple races reaching 80-90. If you have any other questions please feel free to ask.

  5. HI Derek,

    I see on bikereg the Merry Meeting TT is open for registration. Thought you may want to know, as the METTS site still shows “pending”.

    Cheers,

    Herb

  6. Hi Derek,

    Thanks for all of your work on the TT series this year. It’s been tremendous fun.

    I’m trying to figure out my travel schedule for July and am hoping not to miss any races in the process. I notice that while other events happening later in the season have Bike Reg links already, the Hinkley race does not. Is it likely to be cancelled?

    All Best,
    Eric Zuelow

    • Hi Derek, I was wondering the same thing about Hinkley. Could not find it on Bike Reg/ Anything I can do to help?

      Thanks,

      Rob T.
