What is the Double Damn Dam Time Trial Series?

The DDDTT series is a low cost, mid week, grassroots, road time trial series that takes place in August each year. The DDDTTs are great for those planning to race cross in the fall or for those that just like to suffer like dogs.  Realistically, its probably the hardest 12 mile course in the area; start at the intersection of Dixon Canyon Rd and Overland Trail, head West up Stadium Hill, head North along the dams until the speed limit sign just out side Bellvue, perform a 'U' turn at the sign, continue back across the dams and finish at the mailboxes at the top of Stadium Hill.  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.

  • First rider off at 5:30. Start order announced at the start line on race day. 
  • You only need to sign one waiver for the whole series. Print it here before and save yourself sometime.  Waivers are also available at the start. 
  • YGR will provide a number or you can bring your own. Try to use the same number every week if possible. 
  • Thursdays Aug 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th, 31st. 
  • The YGR car will be at the start and will be able to transport your belongings (lights, jackets, bottles, saddlebags etc...) from the start to the finish. 
  • Email info(@)yourgroupride with questions. 

Please Information 

  • Please be respectful of other road users and landowners along the course.  Please don't draft or pass any cars on the descents. Please don't cut off cars at the turnaround.  Wait to make the U turn if you have to.  It wouldn't take very many complaints from local residents and motorists to shut us down and it wouldn't take getting hit by very many cars to get you dead.  
  • If you have an issue with a car, I am happy to deduct a reasonable amount of time from your race to make up for it.

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.
