The Teesdale Mountain Time Trial is arguably one of the hardest Time Trials in the country.

The course is a 40 mile route over the moors between Teesdale and Weardale with some scary descents (50mph in places) and some brutal climbs.

The post-race food and the generous prize list makes this a memorable event.

The event takes place on Sunday18th April, entries are filling up!

Entry forms are available on the CTT website. More details on the event on
Teesdale CRC website

    Having ridden this event every year since it was first organised, i can confirm that is one of the best organised events you will ride in this country. But it is, as the OP says, very tough. The weather can be a significant factor too, it can be pretty cold & windy up on the moors. Low gears needed for the climbs. Apparently though, when Gethin Butler won it a few years ago, he used his TT bike with a single chainring :shock: .

    Fantastic scenery though

    Suppose i had better get my entry in...

    Real pain that this clashes with a BUCS TT, I'd have loved to do it. Spend a lot of my training time on that hill, really spectacular in good weather (or really bad!).
