Time Trial Race Team
VC Venta promotes a friendly and active time-trial scene, with riders of all levels taking part over the season. The Club’s summer evening 10 mile TTs are a great introduction to competitive cycling, taking place on local, scenic courses during the summer months.
At the more competitive end of the spectrum, we have riders competing around the country. In 2018, our men’s Team Time Trial squad placed 5th at the National Championships in Newcastle.
Time trialling is the perfect way to get into cycle racing, no matter what level of fitness you have. This year’s Club 10 Time Trial series will be held throughout the summer and encourages all ages and abilities to pin on a number and race against the clock over a set ten mile course.

COVID-19 Risk Assessment
Due to the very nature of time trialling being a socially distanced cycling discipline, it is expected that by following the CTT COVID-19 Risk Assessment the club will be able to run the full series of planned events in a safe and challenging environment on a selection of varied and challenging courses.
As always, without the willing volunteers of Club members, these events simply cannot happen. The Club needs event owners for the 6 Club events on the dates listed. As an event owner you will be responsible of recruiting your willing team of volunteers and organising the event on the day. All of the support and guidance needed will be available, so please do come forward if you can help by emailing [email protected] to express your interest.
