Transition From Road Race To Individual Time Trial

Here’s a checklist of items we need to address while we transition from Road Race to the Individual Time Trial:

  • Expeditiously prize out the morning road race
  • Post road race results as soon as humanly possible
  • Replace signage from road race number pinning to individual time trial number pinning
  • Move signs from NW corner of road race closer to the hall (Road Race corner #4 marshals have been assigned this duty)
  • Clear up signs from SE & SW corners of road; return these to the hall
  • Setup Bike signs, cones, and straight-through arrows chalk-paint on RR-233 at TWP-492
  • Setup signage, cones, and turn-around chalk-painting on RR-233 southbound right before turnaround
  • Leave NE corner signage from morning’s road race in place; but add one more ABA Race In Progress sign on RR-233 just south of Rollyview Road and facing southbound traffic.
  • Finish approach 200m, 500m, 1000m signs need to be placed accordingly
