The Luton Park Time Trial is a fast and furious mountain bike race taking place in Luton Park (as you could have guessed) on some absolutely splendid single track. While this is an unsanctioned USA mountain bike event, there are just as many categories ranging from single speed, fat bike, and all of the normal age categories. There is a standardized 8-mile loop with under 500 feet of climbing meaning that the pace will be full gas. Riders have the option of one, two, or three laps and cost 45 dollars across the board. Some wholehearted race bonuses are that race proceeds support the Pitt Hopkins Research foundation and the hat and t-shirt are very good looking indeed. A well-attended event, the Lutton Park Time Trial takes advantage of an amazing 8-mile single-track loop and is sure not to disappoint. The TT is a highly recommended event by Strambecco.
