The 2018 Steamboat Primer Time Trial will take place at 9am, Sunday August 26th. The cost is $10.00 for most of you, $5.00 for college kids and the unemployed. Juniors race free.
What is the Steamboat Primer Time Trial?
The SBTT is a grassroots time trial that takes place just before the Steamboat Stage race, final race on the BRAC road calendar. The terrain, elevation and distance are nearly identical to the Steamboat Stage Race. Keep in mind, the Steamboat TT has more turns though. The race costs $10.00 and is open to riders of all ages and abilities whether you're racing Steamboat or not. We have male and female categories including divisions for regular road bikes and time trial bikes.
Registration and Category Information
All ages and abilities and bikes are welcome. Grassroots time trials are great introductions to bike racing and YGR doesn't tolerate any jackassery so come race your bike in a competitive yet fun environment.

Please be respectful of other road users and landowners along the course . 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.
