The Merckx Advantage Time Trial – The 7.5 mile rolling Time Trial on Saturday will have a twist. Any/All riders using aero equipment will receive actual race time BUT riders who complete the TT using a “Merckx Style” TT bike as defined by the following rules will get a :30 second deduction from their time.
Here are the rules and regulations for “Merckx”. There will be a TVS staff member in the staging line to verify rider status of Merckx or Aero. You must declare status before the start to qualify for the advantage. This scoring method is used only for the Stage Race. The results submitted to USAC for the TT will be on raw time only with no advantage. We feel this is fair and fun way to do the TT and allows riders without TT bikes to compete on a level field.
