What is the Double Damn Dams Time Trial Series?
The DDDTT is a low cost, mid week, grassroots, road time trial series that takes place in August each year. The DDDTTs might be the most miserable of all the YGR TTs as you're always climbing or descending. The course is almost never flat. Its a great course to use as training for the upcoming cyclocross season and the final stage race on the BRAC calendar, the Steamboat Stage Race. Races cost $10.00 and are open to riders of all ages and abilities. We have male and female categories as well as categories for regular road bikes, time trial bikes and mountain bikes. See descriptions below.

Further information about the DDDTT will be posted here when it's available.
