We have some great changes in store for the 2016 edition of the NCNCA District TT:
- NEW course – we’ll be using the 2015 USAC Elite National Championships course, starting just north of Loyalton Park. This change helps us to increase rider safety. We’re also able to offer better amenities than in past years and we have proximity to a larger town. Start and finish on Beckwith Road (A24) at Loyalton Elementary School. Flat, surveyed, out and back course. Elevation 4,900 ft.
- Improved parking – parking will be at Loyalton Elementary School, 111 Beckwith Road – Loyalton – CA 96118.
- Easier trainer set-up – riders will have more access to flat ground for setting up their trainers for warm-up.
- Family-friendly event – Loyalton Park is immediately next door to the school and is connected by a short walking path. Families are encouraged to use the park’s facilities, including tennis and basketball courts, skateboard park, picnic area, and shade structures. The park is also close to the race start. After the race, you can visit Frenchman Lake for a swim, ride the scenic Sierra Valley, or hike in the surrounding mountains.
We are inviting food and other vendors to come to the site as an additional race amenity. We will post more information about the vendor expo as it becomes available.
