It’s that time of year for some of our favorite races and setting up the race season for both cyclists and triathletes might begin with some time trial practice. What a great way to transition from indoor training rides, getting that bike fit over the off season and testing it on a time trial.
In Denver, The Karen Hornbostel Memorial Time Trial series is an attractive way to start the season. The KHMTT is hosted by the long-standing COBRAS Cycling team and is a favorite for those wanting to get out in the middle of the week and spin their legs.
For those not familiar with the KHMTT, it is a seven-week time trial series held at Cherry Creek State Park on Wednesday nights starting on April 5th with start times from 4:30 to about 6:30 PM. The course is a somewhat challenging 9.5 miles with a heart pumping climb to the finish. This is one race where you don’t want to leave anything on the course!
It’s a great opportunity to have a great time as well as hone your time trial racing skills and improve your time week after week. The COBRAS post results quickly and keep a running tally of the series ranking on their web site.
They also hire local photographer Ryan Muncy every year to take action shots of the racers and post them to their web site and make them available to racers at no cost. That is a really sweet perk!
This year they are encouraging cyclists who have never raced before and would like to try it out by offering a one night race, USAC license for the night and all for only $20! That is a really inexpensive and easy way to try out the sport and see if you like it or not.
