Usually ride road races, and never ridden an open time trial before,but am riding a hill climb tomorrow.

Is signing on time an hour or so before my start time or the start time of the first rider off. I am presuming its based on my time, otherwise its a long wait for some riders.

    its not like a road race. turn up at the hq , on the table with the race numbers will be the signing on sheet. scribble your name down at the appropiate place , take your number and get changed. theres no formality to it at all.
    constantly reavalueating the situation and altering the perceived parameters accordingly

    If it's an Open you should have signed up at least 12 days in advance and received some information through the post.

    You can turn up and sign on when you like as long as you get your number pinned on and are at the start line before the timekeeper begins counting down from 10.... well, technically you can be late if you wish but it's not good manners :wink: And you'll incur a time penalty.
    Aspire not to have more, but to be more.
