Ahh, the Time Trial or TT ... the race of truth ... just you, the road ahead, the bike beneath and the clock ticking quietly in the background! There is no hiding now!

Here's a great chance ... boys and girls ... to see how you are going in 2014! Or maybe resolve that big debate with your buddies.

And we get to remember a outstanding practitioner in the TT genre ... Robert Hodgson who still holds the Calga 25km course record.

You may not have done a time trial before or you may not have a Gold race license, but you can enter. So, no excuses right?

The NSCC TT club championship is to be held on the 25kms course at Calga on Sunday 2 November 2014, run under ATTA rules, and open to gold and silver licenses. An earlier post on this website provided a whole of lot details at

With $700 prize money on offer, have you entered? What's stopping you?
- Outright first place - $250 plus the Gold Beauie trophy
- Second place - $150
- Third place - $100
- And... the fastest time on a road bike - $200

(but only one prize per entrant though)

Yes, to all those that who may not have aero bars or TT bikes ... a $200 prize is available to the person from NSCC who does the best time on a road bicycle without any equipment specific to time trialling ... no skinsuit, no aero bars, no TT helmet, no booties. Just you against the clock with the equipment that you'd attack the bunch with at Beaumont Road.

So again ... what's stopping you?

Perhaps, the TT format at Calga is just the venue to challenge your mates - it is the race of truth! You do not need a TT bike to compete.

Entry is through the club website, and is $25 for gold licenses and $30 for silver license members. Entry closes Sunday 26th October so we can finalise arrangements with ATTA.

NSCC was once a powerhouse in the TT form of the sport - let's return to those glory days. Sign-up and let the TT challenge begin ... a challenge to you ... and your mates!

C'mon NSCC! Start your engines!
