Helipad TT 2009 Results

The Helipad TT is officially closed for 2009. Thanks to all 58 riders who gave your legs, lungs (and sometimes breakfast) to the climb.

Fastest time: Jeff Herrera 5:04. Jeff snuck in there on Dec 31 and stole 21 seconds off Neil Wright's long standing top time. We'll be expecting a sub 5 minute time from Jeff next year.

I've got some good ideas for keeping the Helipad TT alive and fresh in 2010. I'm thinking of introducing categories: geared and singlespeed (maybe a dowhiller cat for Bob and his Big Bike friends) plus a few other surprises. I'll post the details for 2010 soon. In teh mean time if you have any suggestions please comment below.

So here they are, the 2009 Helipad TT Standings...


  1. Expect a sub-5 minute from me too by the end of the MBAA series! I wish he would have posted that time earlier to have given me some time to try to match it...although my top end right now isn't as high as it was back in September.

    Anyways, I have some ideas for another awesome TT. Do Javelina from the start (the whole trail) and then add the section after the last hill (where the trail post is before the downhill back to the dirt road) to make a left and go up ridgeline to the top (where there is a trail post as well) to add some extra climbing and a puke-factor.

  2. I will expect sub-5 from a few of you high rollers. I hope to shave a minute off my time putting me in the sub-sixers group.

    A Javelina TT sounds like a workout. 2 miles of pure climbing fun, especially the ridgeline section. Serious puke-factor there! Maybe I'll set it up...
