Background: In 2007 the GC was approached to start a Time Trial series. We researched and concluded that a TT series in GA would be an excellent project for us. So, in 2009 with the support of ATS, ALL3SPORTS & TURN-KEY TIMING we started the series. Trials are NOT easy to time & get out results quickly, much less instantly like we have done for every GCTT this year. With the special assistance from Turn-Key Timing we exceeded all expectations. It is very rare to race in a TT (Much less a TTT) and get results with your Elapsed Time, Avg Speed, Category Rank and Overall Rank all before you get changed. Then have results posted online before you leave the parking lot. Last, with the help of Dalton Awards & Trophy’s we developed “NEW” custom awards – Bag Tags. Some use them as coasters.
Our goal in 2010 is to continue to provide quality Time Trial events that the entire family can enjoy. While we will reduce the total amount of TT’s, there will be a lot more variety. Race distances will be as short as 5k and as long as 40k.
