Time Trial Info

Join us for the 3rd Annual Cheaha Challenge Time Trial on Saturday, May 14, held in conjunction with the weekend events of the 29th Annual Cheaha Challenge Gran Fondo Century & ULTRA on Sunday, May 15.  Experience the thrill of exiting a time trial podium down a ramp onto a closed 12-mile straight shot course (only three turns, all near the finish), and test what you’re made of as you barrel along the flat, fast, fun path.  The TT course is flat and fast!!  View the course profile here.

Our TT is a qualifier for the UCI World Time Trial Championship to be held in conjunction with the UCI Gran Fondo World Championship September  2022 in Trento, Italy.  Age groups are determined by racer’s age on December 31st.

UCI World Time Trial Championship qualifier – Finish top three of your age group or in the top 20%, and you’re going to qualify for the World Championships! (Note: UCI recognizes only age groups of 19 years old and above.)
