Starting off at intervals your goal is to complete the 10 mile course as quickly as possible.
You can turn up and compete in the odd Time Trial but if you compete in sufficient events and score highly enough then you could be crowned either men or ladies DTC Time Trial Champion.
This year we are going to run some events ourselves but also use South Pennine Road Club’s Thursday evening events. SPRC events will be on the 10 mile Doveridge/Sudbury course. SPRC events are affiliated with Cycling Time Trials and will be run under CTT rules. SPRC events are £4.50 and can be entered on the night at the start point.
Please see this website detailing the SPRC events https://www.cyclingtimetrials.org.uk/club-events?club_id=328 (please note that SPRC are running more TT than the ones were are promoting as part of our time trial league, only the specified events will count towards the league).
Other DTC dates, will either be held at Darley Moor Race Track or on the same Doveridge/Sudbury course. Pay in advance for DTC sessions. Please check timings as these can change between DTC/SPRC
These training sessions are unfortunately not open to non-club members.
Help is required to run DTC course events. If you can help out with the timekeeping please contact let the Time trial coordinators or a member of the committee know – full training will be given!
These are training events; you are entirely responsible for your own safety while riding.

No disclaimer no ride.
DTC organised events are training events and the routes are not marked either with directions or ‘Caution Cyclist’ signs therefore you must be careful and learn the routes.
Doveridge/Sudbury – setting off just up the road towards Sudbury Hall from the A515/Ashbourne Junction. Following the road, first exit at the roundabout towards Doveridge, before reaching the next roundabout to take a full U-turn going back on yourself. When back at the A515 roundabout, of the first lap, again take a U-turn to repeat that lap. When back again, for the second time, at the A515 roundabout, take the third exit back up towards the start, ensuring you go past the timekeeper before safely slowing down.
Darley Moor – meeting at the chequered start/finish line, follow the track anti-clockwise 7 times. Try to keep to the right when overtaking and avoid overtaking , where possible, on the hairpin corner. When you finish, after 7 laps, safely check over before you slow to a stop, and walk back to the start/finish, or continue on cool down laps, still following all health and safety guidance.
Time Trial League
There will be a men’s and women’s league. Points will be awarded: 10 for first, 8 for second 6 for third and then 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1 for 8th. Your best 4 results from all the events will count to your final score. At the end of the 11 events the league winner will be the person with the highest score. If there should be two or more people with the same score then the champion will be determined by who won most head to head encounters.
These can be found by clicking here or visiting the Webscorer website. http://www.webscorer.com/2229
Registration takes place before each session, where you will be given your number, worn on the back of your jersey.
You then make your way to the start with the first rider starting promptly at 18:50. Please queue in single file and ensure that you do not block any driveway. There are no toilets at the start line.
You will be set off at predetermined intervals, ride the course at all times complying with the highway code and as you cross the finish line please shout your number to assist the timekeepers.
A downloadable Route will be available.
Once you have completed your ride please make your way back to teh start and return your number and wait here for your results. No dangerous ‘u’ turns in the road or congregating at the finish time keeper please. It is very off putting for riders to hang around the time keeper whilst there are other riders still coming in – failure to comply may mean a 30 second penalty!
