YGR Time Trials- April/June/August

The YGR Time Trials have been happening on generally the same courses just outside Fort Collins, CO, since 2009. The individual time trials are open to men and women of all abilities with categories for tt bikes, mass start legal road bikes and mtb/cx/gravel bikes. The courses range from pretty flat to hilly as hell. The Taft Hill (17 miles) course is pretty flat, while both the Double Damn Dams (12 miles) and Horsetooth (17 miles) courses are hilly as hell. Time on course is, of course, dependent on fitness but ranges from 40 minutes to 1 hour and 15 minutes.
