Elkhart Time Trial: July

A great turnout for a gorgeous night in Elkhart! 64 total riders toed the line on the evening. Temp was hovering around the mid 70’s with a 0-8 MPH S wind! Chatting with a couple folks, they had their best times yet this year. Up next is our August addition and that will bring the series for 2021 to a close. Here is the Facebook link for the August event as well as registration.

Elkhart Time Trial: June

Another great turnout for a steamy night in Elkhart! Looks like we had 61 total riders for the evening. Temp was hovering around 90 with a 5-10 MPH SSE wind. A little closer to normalcy arose as state mandates have started to relax. Always fun to hear chatter about racers improving their times as the series progresses. USAC results will be coming in the next few days. Looking forward to July! Here is a link to the July Facebook Event:

Elkhart Time Trial: May

Great turnout for a beautiful night in Elkhart! Looks like we had 66 total riders for the evening. Temp was hovering in the mid 60’s with the wind out of the south 10-20 MPH. In talking with some of the racers, it sounded like the feel was somewhat normal to previous years and it was great to be racing bikes again! We will work to get results posted that evening on that night’s Facebook event page following the event. Here is the link for June’s event:

Coming soon! A time trial near you! Elkhart 2021.

Coming back for 2021 is the Elkhart Time Trial! This year Zealous Racing is proud to announce our partnership with Zoom Performance to bring you The Elkhart Time Trail Series. A few changes this season, including scaling down from a 5 race series to 4. Although not ideal, it was decided a few months ago that may be the safest gamble with the pandemic to still be able to run a series. The look and feel of race day will be very similar to years past and the start times will also be the same with the first rider rolling off at 6:30 PM and each following rider 30 seconds after. There will be some changes to staging, so stay tuned for those as they come. We have events posted on Facebook and updates will be communicated through those events. And as in years past, there will be discounts for those that sign up for the whole series.

Registration will be opening soon through BikeReg. We will have a link on this page as well as the Facebook event pages for registration once it goes live. Come out and test yourself for 2021!

Elkhart Time Trial August & 2019 Final Edition

First and foremost thank you racers for joining us the 2nd Thursday of the past 5 months.  It has been a tremendous first season for me as a race director.  Quite honestly other than April this has been some of the best weather we have had in a long time.  It is my hope that each of you enjoyed pushing your limits every time.  We saw records fall, new friendships found, rivalries begin, and rivalries continue.  As for August edition it was a perfect night to a great series.  Thank you again for being a part of our series.

Over the course of the year we saw 6 new records set:

Matt Gardiner   M Open 14:11.87                                                                                                    Lily Ensign F JR 18:45.99                                                                                                             Heather Poskevich W EM 18:44.27                                                                                                     Deanne Herr W 4/5  18:27.26                                                                                                                Brooks Glassnap Recumbent 14:19.69                                                                                              Greg Grandgeorge M Fat Bike 19:17.40

For me this series was the gateway to a greater community.  As you think about the past season and begin to make plans for the next I encourage you to bring a friend.  Race the clock and see how each of you measure up.  Along with that, check out the local crit races and dive in.  The bike racing community has so much to offer. Once you go full gas, you won’t want to look back and you’ll wonder why didn’t I find this sport years ago.

I have a few takeaways and tweaks already for next season, be on the lookout for updates after the new year. Results are attached.

Elkhart Time Trial May 2019 Edition

A big thank you to all that came to play bikes and challenge themselves to improve from last month.  Weather proved to be a bit more agreeable though the warmth still evaded us.  Times across the board were significantly lower.  William Schupp took top honors on the night riding to a 16:56.42 the only one to break into the 16 minute barrier.  Jennifer Borst took top honors for the women’s field at 18:56.10.  It was noted that women now compromise 25% of the field, well done ladies.  I know warmer weather is just around the corner. See you next month. Results:
