SportzMad Cycling Time Trial - 10 Miles (R10/17)
ABOUT TIME TRIALLING
Time trialling is an ideal introduction to competitive cycling. It’s just you, your bike, and the stopwatch. It’s the branch of cycle racing in which Sir Bradley Wiggins won his gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics.
Time trialling is the simplest of competitive formats: a race against the clock, with riders starting a minute apart. It’s known as ‘The Race of Truth’ because there’s nowhere to hide, no one to draft behind; just you and the bike and the thumping of your heart. Oh, and a clock ticking.
Further information on time trialling can be found on the governing bodies new website aimed at people starting out in the sport - www.theraceoftruth.org.uk
