The 3 Bears
Time Trial Series
August 10 & 24, September 7, 2014
Promoted by Summit Velo and held under USAC Permit # 2014-2147
NEW Course this year and the series expands to three races!
We have moved the race series to a great new venue. The road has virtually no traffic and we have secured a large staging area on private property that will allow for parking, registration and warm up all in a safe out of traffic area still very close to the start/finish area. The location is the same driving time from Tucson as our old Park Link course and 10-15 minutes closer to Phoenix and all points north. The road runs the same direction as the State TT course, so come out and race our series as the perfect preparation for both the State ITT and TTT Championships.
While low traffic, racers must still stay to the right side of the road! There will be race officials on the course to enforce this rule!
Start time on all dates will be 7:00 a.m. and we will run the 20 K race and then the 30 K race. Riders go off in order of registration.
There is online preregistration at ArizonaReg.Com. Packet pick up and day before registration will be held the day before each race at ProBike (6540 E Tanque Verde Rd. Tucson) from 2-4 p.m. Race day registration will be from 6:00-6:30 a.m. at the race staging area. Start times for all registered racers will be listed on our website (www.summitvelo.org) by 8:00 p.m. the night before each race.
Race fees are:
$22 for all senior categories and masters classes for online registration through August 4, August 18, and September 1 for the three race dates respectively.
$27 for all senior categories and masters classes for online registration from August 5, August 19, and August 31 for the three race dates respectively.
$30 for all senior categories and masters classes for in person registration the day before each race.

Traffic should be light, and race volunteers will be directing traffic at the start/finish and turnaround, but keep in mind that the course IS OPEN so stay as far to the right as is safe and reasonable at all times. There will be port-a-johns and an EMT on-site.
