Weekly Series of Time Trial / Hillclimb Races
The NCC presents a weekly series of races on Tuesday nights at 6pm at a variety of locations in the Northampton area from March through August. The races are fun, informal, self-timed events, attracting all sorts of riders, from professional racers to grandparents.
The races alternate each week between hillclimbs, which are mass-start events where drafting is allowed, and time trials, with individual starts at 30-second intervals, and no drafting allowed. Detailed descriptions and maps are located here.
Each race is listed on the NCC Events Calendar. Races are canceled for inclement weather, with notice posted on the discussion board, so be sure to check the calendar before heading out if weather conditions are dicey.
The series is scored with a points system, with points awarded for each race based on the number of competitors. For example, if there are 19 riders and you have the best time, you will be awarded 19 points, second will get 18 points, etc., all the way down to the last rider who will get 1 point.
