Team Time Trial Video

Check it out. This was our annual Team Time Trial that we held after the 10 mile individual event Wednesday night at Lowes Motor Speedway. The first 4-5 mins are different teams starting. If you go to 6-9 mins you can see some of the action on the track. It gets hairy with teams passing each other so we limit the number of teams on the track at any time.

Great night to ride with little to no wind-but warm and humid but it's August in the Carolinas!

Teams start with 4 riders with the finish time for the team the 3rd rider's time crossing the line.

We had record 31 teams to sign up.

That is great- 30 teams and it got a bit crowded at times.Good job you limited the No. of teams on the track at a time. Could have been interesting with a mass start.
