Cyclists Work-Up Appetite at New Glarus

 

July 19, 2018



Saturday morning, July 21st, the MadCity Velo Club will host the New Glarus Time Trial on our country roads north of town.  This is a specialized bike race in which the athletes compete individually against the clock.  The first cyclist starts at 9:00 a.m., at the intersection of 2nd Street and 1st Avenue.  The time trialers are released every 30 seconds and must ride solo for the entire course.  The route goes out on County Road O/G, turns left onto Hustad Valley Road and turns left onto Pioneer Road.  When cyclists come to the intersection of Pioneer and County Road O, they turn left to do another loop or turn right to head back to the green “New Glarus Population 2172” sign, which is the finish line.  All roads will remain open.  Sheriff’s deputies will assist at several intersections to make life safer for the athletes and more convenient for motorized traffic.

The Wisconsin Cycling Association holds their state championship time trial from 9:00 a.m.-10:00 a.m., American Bicycle Racers and WiSport hold their race from 10:00 a.m.-Noon.  The racers are divided into ability categories and/or five-year age groups.  Time trial cyclists often use aerodynamic bicycles and clothing.  Some of the better cyclists will average over 25 mph on the 19.2-mile course.  Those under age 15 and 70+ will do the shorter 11.1-mile course.

Anyone with good bike handling skills may enter the later races.  Sign-up at Glarner Park the morning of the races or on-line or at https://www.truesport.com/index.php/events/truesport_event/792.  For further information see the flyer on the TrueSport website or email steve.wehrley@ngsd.k12.wi.us.
