The Eastern Ohio Time Trial Series will begin in May 2012 and end in September 2012. This series is comprised of time trials exclusively, and will rank racers based on results of the 5 time trial races listed (numbered) in the calendar. See the schedule for specific race dates. Racers can compete in as few or as many of these 5 races as they wish. Points accumulate throughout the year and will be tabulated in an ongoing basis. All points in these 5 races will count toward a racer’s overall series results. We are scoring your best 4 times out of 5 races. The winner will have the lowest combined time of the 4 events. 3 of the 5 races must be attended in order to qualify for the championship prizes. If an event should be cancelled, for any reason, that awarded points will be dropped and the series will continue, being made up of the remaining events. If the event is re-scheduled, and the new date does not conflict with another series date, then the event will still count in the series and the race number sequence will be correspondingly changed.
