Time trial series returns to bike path

FRISCO – Time is running out for cyclists to race against the clock.

The Great Adventure Sports time trial No. 5 takes place Thursday and challenges riders to top their own times.

The course is just under six miles from Frisco to Copper Mountain on the bike path. The race will be run in the same format as time trial No. 3, which took place on the same route and saw victories from Steve Prokopiw and Karin Carestia. Prokopiw had the fastest time, finishing in 15 minutes, 59.43 seconds, while Carestia was the fastest woman in 18:18.30.

“It’s a second running on a great venue – a piece of course most riders are familiar with,” said Mike McCormack of Maverick Sports Promotions, which organizes the time trial series. “It’s an opportunity to test yourself against the clock.”

The start line is on the bike path near Fiesta Jalisco, and the finish line is on the path just before the Conoco station at Copper Mountain. The series finale will be another climb from Copper to the summit of Vail Pass on July 31.

Preregistration for Thursday’s time trial costs $12 until noon Thursday at Great Adventure Sports in Breckenridge, or $15 on site before the race, which begins at 6 p.m. Parking is available at the Park and Ride lot at the north end of Main Street in Frisco, and across the street in the Wieronski Plumbing lot on Forest Drive. Competitors are encouraged to ride to the course. The post-race party will take place at the Backcountry Brewery in Frisco.
