What is the Taft Hill Time Trial Series?
The THTT is a low cost, mid week, grassroots, road time trial series that takes place in June each year. The THTTs are great for those planning to race the State Time Trial Championships at the end of June. It's a classic TT course, a mostly flat out and back with some gentle rollers, a roundabout at the turnaround and a power climb to the finish. The weather for this series is always crazy for some reason; heat, rain, hail, wind, smoke, lightning, you name it, we've had it. Races cost $10.00 (for most, details below) and are open to riders of all ages and abilities. We have male and female categories including categories for regular road bikes, time trial bikes, mountain bikes and two person teams.

Eddy Merckx- This category is named after the great Belgian cyclist, Eddy Merckx. Merckx won 450 races, 35% of the races he entered. Racers in this category can only race on standard 'mass start legal' road bikes. Aero bars, disc wheels, time trial helmets are not allowed. Skin suits and shoe covers are ok.
Aero- The Aero category allows for any type of time trial, triathlon bike or road bike with aero components. The more aerodynamic the better. Aero bars, disc wheels, aero helmets, skin suits and shoe covers are encouraged. Break out the fancy stuff.
Kerkove- If applicable- The Kerkove Kategory is named for former Fort Collins resident, Jeff Kerkove. Jeff had a tendency to attend the Oval, Wednesday Worlds and YGR Time Trials on his mountain bike. Racers in this category must race on a mountain bike with knobby tires. No CX tires or slicks.
Zagster- If applicable- Racers must race on one of the Zagster Bike Share bicycles owned by the City of Fort Collins. Just register online and show up to the race start and your steed will be waiting for you.
Eddy Merckx Two person Teams- Just like the Eddy Merckx category but with two riders (men, women and co-ed if applicable) start at the same time, riding mass start legal road bikes. The stopwatch stops when the 2nd rider crosses the finishline.
