That's what the Roswell/Alpharetta Mountain Bike Organization (RAMBO) did on June 12th with their first time trial in the Big Creek TT-13 Time Trial Series sponsored by Alpha Bikes. Because racers must be IMBA-SORBA members to participate, 29 out of the 62 racers signed up with new memberships at the event. The racers get to compete in a well-run event, and RAMBO gets more support for the work they do at Big Creek Park in Roswell, GA.
The series continues on July 10th and August 14th. A donation of $10 per event is requested. Prizes will be awarded at the final event. Categories and awards are:
RAMBO volunteers make this event run smoothly. They mark the course, run registration, start and time the racers, furnish pizza for those who are hungry, post results, and clean up afterward.
Says chapter President Brad Wender, "It is a lot of work, but 62 participants makes it worthwhile. We have a good time doing this every summer, and we're looking forward to the next two events. Even if you missed the first one, we encourage you to come out in July and August and see how well you do on our course. Big Creek is a challenging course, and worth your while to experience."
