Entry is open to all athletes aged 50 and over during the year, regardless of residence, and all age-group medalists in 1-mile, 5k and 10k qualify for NC Senior Games in late September. There are 5-year age groups ad infinitum i.e. 50-54, 55-59, etc.
A-BSG TT rules are different for USAC. Participants can enter for up to five distances, 1-mile, 5k, 10k, 20k and 40k, but it is combined into one ride with split times determining the results. The course is out-and-back so most riders, having competed the 1-mile, 5k and 10k to the turn-round, continue their race back to the cars at 20k. A few like to prolong the pain and do a second lap. NCSG does not have 20k or 40k TTs, so medalists only qualify for the shorter distances.
The past few of years I have presented a TT workshop, and am willing to do so again this year if there is sufficient interest, probably at Carrier Park in early- or mid-April. If you are interested in participation, or have other questions, please contact me, Trevor Wallis, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please put these TTs on your calendars. They are fun, with little pressure, and are a great opportunity to test your speed endurance.
