2017 Tennessee State Championship Time Trial

State Time Trial 2017

Lift Center Racing (especially Justin Lowe), Nashville Local Cycling (especially Michael Edens), and the city of Dover, worked together to quickly and successfully organize a great State Championship Time Trial this year. 

The start line was in front of the Stewart County Courthouse on Hwy 79 and was an out-and-back course along Hwy 79. The course was fairly flat and fast with a gradual climb to the 40k turnaround then fast down and flat all the way to the finish. However, the trip back turned out to be a little harder than most racers were expecting due to a headwind.

Lift Center Racing represented well, as you can see from the multiple podium pics! Here they are, in order of appearance.
