The Cronometro

The Cronometro
Presented by Austin Nationals Cycling
J. Lorraine Ghost Town (Manor, TX)
Saturday, March 12, 2011

The Cronometro Time Trial is coming up on Saturday, March 12 and here is what to expect! The course is a 12 mile loop – all right hand turns. It consists of a challenging mix of false flats, rollers, one nasty climb, and a few really fast descents. And yes, it starts at a bona fide Ghost Town!

It’s the perfect excuse to become one with your TT equipment before the season gets fully underway. Not to mention, see how all of the winter trainer sessions are paying off!

There's a super cool start house (think Tour de France!!!), great music and a professional announcer to get your mojo going. Can you say chip timing? Yes -- there's that too!

Afterward, they're having a party! Awards ceremony, live music and an insane raffle for over $3k in merchandise and gift certificates from Jack & Adams Bicycles, Pure Austin , Polar Bottle, NeWorlDeli, Tifosi, Yeti Coolers, Willie’s World Cycling, Nordy Design/Bicycle Painting, Holland Racing, Arundel, Advanced Bodywork Center, Veloce’ Speedwear, and The Law Offices of Bradley Houston.

The J. Lorraine Ghost Town is a really cool venue with plenty of parking, restrooms, and a licensed kitchen serving beer, wine and food. In fact, they’re giving away free Ghost Burgers to the first 100 registered.

Not really into Tri/TT Bikes? No problem -- there's Road Bike (think Eddy Merckx), Single Speed, and Tandem categories to boot!

We look forward to seeing everyone for some real Ghost Town fun!
