The Canal Crown 2018

Race Updates

We look forward to seeing everyone at the CCTT Awards Gala tonight at AJBW at 6pm!  We'll be posting everyone's round 4 times later today with final times to follow shortly.


Thank you to everyone for another great year of some fun in the woods.  A big thank you goes to all the folks that help make the event possible.  You know who you are and we greatly appreciate your support!  Round 4 race pics are up.  We're holding round 4 times until Saturday, but chances are you know how you finished up for the series.  The series end party will be at Andy Jordan's Bicycle Warehouse at 6pm on Saturday, July 14th.  


Our good friends at El Teresa's in North Augusta will be setting up a fajita bar for us and we want to make sure no one leaves the fiesta hungry!  All racers and volunteers are welcome.  We'll be distributing some super awesome DIY trophies for the top 3 in each class and some Specialized Bicycle Components bucks for the winner of each class!  Did we mention you need to RSVP via our store email?

We look forward to hanging out with you all this Saturday!   

By the way, FATS Flow Master 2 Registration is now open!

It's time for some local, grassroots-style MTB racing at the
10th Annual Canal Crown MTB Time Trial Series!
  Yes, 10 years of fun!

Whether you're a seasoned MTBer or just getting started, this event is a good time guaranteed.  This race series is all about having some fun with friends on your bike in the woods.
Who will be crowned the King and Queen of the Canal Singletrack
It could be you!
Race Format
Racers will be sent off in 10 to 20 second intervals (expert classes will go first), fastest riders first to minimize passing, for one lap (including up/down the stairs).  Each racer has the option to race 2 Clockwise and 2 Counter-Clockwise races with their slowest times being dropped.  Timing will be done by SORBA-CSRA.  To compete for the overall series awards, and to join the series-end party, you must race at least 1 Clockwise and 1 Counter-Clockwise race.  Race direction will be based upon the race date unless we're making up a rain date.  If there's enough rain before a race that damage to the trail could be caused, it will be announced here and will be postponed until the next week.  All results from each race will be posted here.  Overall results will be announced at the series-end party.

$5 per race for IMBA-SORBA members (please bring proof of membership), $10 per race for non-members.
Entry fees will be used to pay for the awards party and trophies at the end of the series. Any net funds will be saved for trail improvement projects.  Feel free to stop by AJBW to pre-register for the race.

Sign up for an IMBA-SORBA membership ($39/year) at the race and race all four time trials for FREE!  By joining IMBA-SORBA you'll support local MTB advocacy and trail maintenance efforts.  We will have membership forms on hand at each race and at the store.

Registration will start at 6:30pm at the main trailhead. 
The first racer will be sent off at 7:00pm

If time is an issue, feel free to stop by the store to pre-register for each race, or the full series, by 5pm.
  You can also sign up for a SORBA-CSRA Membership at the store too.

The closest parking area is Eisenhower Park.  Other options are the new Lake Olmstead trailhead, the KROC Center/Mill Village trailhead, and AJBW (this will give you a little warm up ride).

Classes are Novice, Sport, Expert, Novice Women, Sport Women (new class, but we need 3 racers to make the class), Expert Women, and Youth.  It's up to you to choose the class you feel most comfortable racing in.  Not sure where you fit in?  Look at the times from previous years below.  To make sure each class is represented fairly and to keep things competitive, we reserve the right to move you up, or down, a class.

"Trophies" will be awarded to the top 3 racers in each class at each race. 
The top 3 overall in each class will receive custom made, one of a kind trophies at the series end party. 
$$$ SPECIALIZED equipment of the winner's choice will be distributed amongst first place in each category.

Series End Party
The party will be held at AJBW on a Saturday (date TBD) at 6pm. 
All racers and volunteers are invited, please RSVP via email.
