Big TT's in the US?

I am curious if there are any big TT's in the US (besides nationals) that are well known around the country, like some crits and road races are (Sea Otter comes to mind).

To re-phrase, if you were going to travel to a TT besides nationals, which one(s) would you go to?

Sattley & Moriarty. There are several other very challenging ones in stage races.

i assume youre doing the ACA TTs? those fields are pretty challenging.

what cat are you?

sort of a side note but in FC we have some pretty competitive tuesday night TTs, danielson and zajicek showed up last year for our Horsetooth TT series, and many of the Rio elite guys will be at the Taft Hill series that starts this week. i think tejay showed up a couple of years back too. theres no money or anything but theyre only ten bucks and a good time.

Thanks!
Moriarty - same as Paula Higgens Memorial Record Challenge Time Trial (in Moriarty, NM)?

Haven't done this, but thought it was an interesting idea:

Time Trial Stage Race (eastern Oregon)

It's in April, so you'll have to wait until next year, but if you're going to travel, at least this way you get to do a couple races...

The Gainesville TT Challenge at the end of June is usually a big event. Or at least just hard as hell because it's hosted in the middle of a swamp with a heat index of 110F.

A TT stage race, sounds silly... and awesome!
