Something to think about Springfield

By my count Springfield brought home 9 medals from the Missouri State TT. 6 Gold's (Master men 35-39, 40-44, 50-54, 55-59 women 50-54), 2 Silver's(Cat 5, Jr boys 13-14), & 1 bronze; even after almost getting hit by another car(Roger Hinson) . Why doesn't the SPR have a TT series or even one single Time Trial?

On a side note after thinking about it. Registration was a complete disaster @ State TT this year. You were actually PUNISHED for preregistrating. Those who waited till day off got to walk straight up(no line), didn't have to pay a Sportsbase online fee, & slotted into good spots. I like the idea of starting by category(like CX nationals this year) but this was ridiculous. there was a 10 minute slot before me with ONE person in it. Please rethink this plan for next year & don't punish those whose preregister.


  1. Scott-Thanks for noticing the great work from the Springfield folks at the State TT, congrats to yourself on your gold medal. I would love to see a TT series here.

    I agree with you the registation was a complete disaster!!! Stand in line forever!!

    Congrats to everyone in this area on the great work they did at the State TT....

  2. Because Time trailing is LAME!

  3. Posted something about having one on the OCC message board and no responses. I have a good area picked out for one. I think it would be great and I dont even TT. This would give some people that have spent mucho money on TT bikes a way to put them to good use.

  4. Two in a row, nice job Scott!

    Should be a good race come December for the Jersey :)
