Malaekahana Time Trial

*The 2020 event is not a state time trial

Malaekahana Beach Park

June 6, 2020

Instructions updated June 2, 2020

 

Mahalo for your interest in the 2020 Malaekahana Time Trial. Due to the current pandemic, this will not be the Hawaii State Time Trial Championship this year. Given the current circumstances some major changes have been made to the event. It is understandable if you are not comfortable with these changes or no longer wish to participate. A full refund will be given with all respect and no questions asked.

 

Please read carefully:

 

**The most important change: in order to hold the event, we cannot interfere with normal traffic flow. There will be no police or traffic controls. Riders are on their own on open roads. I’m hoping that between 5:30-6:30am on a Saturday morning it should be quiet. This is obviously not ideal but it’s the only option. This event is sanctioned by USA Cycling.

 

  • Given the current circumstances we are very fortunate to be able to hold this race. Please be respectful of the Koolauloa community and those who are not comfortable attending.

  • Registration fee has been reduced through the end of May due to fewer race expenses: $45 through May 31. June 1-4 entry fee is $65.

  • Koolauloa residents race for free but must register before 6pm on June 4.

  • Packet pickup will be outside/curbside at Hawaii Triathlon Center from 4pm – 6pm Saturday, May 30 through Thursday, June 4. Athletes may only register online at www.hitricenter.com and there will be no exceptions made for participants after 6pm on June 4. There will be no race day packet pickup or check in. We will just start the race with the first rider at 5:30am

  • Rider start list and start times will be posted by 8pm on Thursday, June 4.

  • Rider briefing will be held on Friday, June 5 at 6:00pm via Facebook Live on the Hawaii Triathlon Center Facebook page.

  • Postrace meeting and awards will be held at 12pm on Saturday, June 6 via Facebook Live through Hawaii Triathlon Center’s Facebook page. Awards will be mailed out Monday after the race.

  • Start time updated to 5:30am and riders will be sent off in 1-minute intervals.

  • There will be a starter standing approximately 10 feet to the side of the starting line, no bike holders.

  • You will have a starting appointment time. There will be no “caller” to make sure you are in the right place and on time. You must queue up at draft legal distance apart, lines will be taped on the ground to follow.

  • Please park your vehicle at least 6 feet apart and maintain appropriate distance while warming up. There is plenty of road shoulder space in that area.

  • Bib numbers are required. You will be timed and results will be published.

  • Please arrive on your own or in your quarantine household only, warmup on your own, and leave as soon as you’ve finished and cooled down. Please do not ride back through the finish line once you have finished.

  • This is an individual time trial. Cyclists are to maintain more than 12 meters between each other except when passing. All passes must be completed within 30 seconds and riders must make immediate progress out of the draft zone once passed.

  • Fixed gear bikes must have a working brake

  • Road / Merckx category rules: no aerobars, no aero helmets, no wheels deeper than 40mm.

  • Junior riders under 15 years old will complete the 20k course. **ALL JUNIOR RIDERS ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE AN ADULT ESCORT FOR THE ENTIRE DURATION OF THEIR RIDE DUE TO THE OPEN ROADS**

  • Race number bib used for timing purposes. No bib number, no time. Please attach number upright and centered in low back. Watch any UCI pro road race and copy that. Do not rotate 90*, keep upright.

 

Course information:

This is a 40km individual time trial. Riders will start at Malaekahana Beach Park and head towards Kualoa Ranch to Kalaeoio Beach Park (between Kaaawa Elementary School and Kualoa Ranch’s “surf gate”) on Kamehameha Highway where riders will u-turn and come back along the same route (20km out, then back).
