What? QuinTuple Pave Classic (Tall Tree Team Time Trial)Yes, its dubbed a team TT, but the spirit is really team randonnee. Readers familiar with this genre will likely suspect I have invented this term; they would be correct, I have. I like the short version, 'team rando;' I think it is a format that holds a lot of promise. We'll see. We've found that doing group rides on difficult terrain is challenging, because there tends to be a broad range of abilities in the mix. That's cool we want to pull all sorts of riders into the fold to enjoy the routes. However, inevitably, some find themselves waiting too much, others chasing too much. The team rando format allows riders to ride in groups of similar abiilties, working together at whatever pace is desired. Two teams can work together, more even. Or teams can try to drop each other. Whatever, the idea is to have a good time.
- 5 riders per team, all riders must finish in order for time to count. Last rider's time is the team's time.
- Tandems count as two riders.
- Teams that can't manage 5 can ride with 4 as a last resort, but we encourage you to get up to 5.
- We will match up riders to complete/form teams.Distance: 145k (including 10k neutral rolling start from Lac Leamy).
