THE ORIGINAL RGT TEAM TIME TRIAL
VCNTT is designed to be flexible. There's lots of riding and racing each week so finding a timeslot can be difficult. VCNTT lets you choose when to ride. Each week we provide the course via a magic road code and teams choose which day and time they want to ride. Teams set up their own event so there is no long countdown to the start and no other riders interfering. Teams should be a maximum of 6 riders with the time taken on the 3rd rider over the finish line.
Step 1 - Grab the relevant magic road code from below and copy and paste it into the RGT magic roads library Step 2 - Create a race at a time to suit you and your teammates at RGT Cycling Step 3 - Share the event code with your teammates Step 4 - Race hard! Step 5 - Add the code to RGTdb Step 6 - Submit the RGTdb code via the form below
Just register for the events using the form below and we do the rest! Results are emailed to team captains every Sunday evening and also posted every Monday on our social media channels and via the relevant tab below. Don't have a team? Check discord for teams looking for riders.
Thanks to Falk Levien for the amazing work he has done producing the courses for this 6 week series and the spreadsheet guru's Nick Greenhalgh and Steve Taylor who track all the times and data.

We'll start off this series with the European TT Championship course of 2019, on which Remco Evenepoel announced himself as one of the top Time Trialists of his generation by claiming the title. While this course is short and flat to get back into things, you'll still have to make it over a few short but surprisingly steep overpasses.

Not to worry, you won't have to ride to Dakar all the way from Paris. In fact, you'll only have to follow the road along the coast. But don't let that flat profile fool you, there's constant undulations on this one. Can you keep your squad together or will you fall out of the draft?

It's VCN Championship week! This course is a challenge unlike any you have faced in this series before. Following the Rio Olympics Time Trial course, you and your squad will suddenly turn off the flat road along the shoreline and find yourself faced with four horrible climbs, each one far worse than the one before it. And you have to take a strong team over all of them, because at the final summit, the finish line is still far away. If you want to claim the championship, you will need power, tactics and a well matched and perfectly coordinated team. Let's see if you've got what it takes!

Any New Yorkers should recognise a lot of this course. You'll have to cross Manhattan Bridge out of the gate and Williamsburg Bridge just before the line as your major obstacles. And in between, you'll get the chance to perform at your best on Broadway.

What this course lacks in technicality or elevation, it makes up for in length. Make sure you don't burn any of your matches too soon, otherwise one of the five overpasses may be the one that gets you. And after the race, make sure to check your Strava feed for your latest gem.

To conclude this series, you'll be faced with yet another tough challenge. Gran Canaria, popular amongst pro cyclists, will throw some elevation at you. But in contrast to most courses, you'll also be faced with significant downhill sections. Stay together, because this one will decide your final rank on GC.
