What is the Horsetooth Time Trial Series?
The HTTT is a low cost, mid week, grassroots, road time trial series that takes place in April each year. The HTTTs were the first races promoted by YGR in 2009 and are still the most well attended. 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.
