The club has a rich history of time trialling, dating back to it’s inception as a club. Didcot Phoenix have produced hundreds of time triallists over the years and many of those riders have gone on to compete at open events and national championship events, from 2 minute hill climb races through to 24H endurance TT events. We have seen riders gain national medals in championship events for age group racing and the national team time trial, with multiple top 10s in other disciplines.
Our entry level time trial race calendar has seen some changes over the years, but our Thursday night time trial series is famous amongst local racers for our inclusive and welcoming atmosphere. Featuring a wide range of courses to suit all riders, the Thursday night series is a great starting point for new racers wanting to get started in the world of time trials.
The club also promote bigger events during the year called Open Events. These will welcome riders from further afield, and whilst the level of competition is generally a little higher than club events we still pride ourselves on a welcoming and friendly atmosphere at these events. All riders are welcome, and these events are a fantastic way to open yourself up to a wider range of courses, distances, and test yourself with new challenges!
A large number of local clubs also promote midweek and open time trials throughout the year, so you will never be short of options when it comes to TT events!
