On behalf of ABRT and Phase Cycling, thanks for coming out to another successful Church Creek Time Trial. We had a gorgeous day with light winds and moderate temperatures, a rare treat for August in Maryland! You can see all the results and links to the podium pictures and the photo album from our on course Photographer Ted Morgan (all full resolution images should be available on Sunday) on our web site:
Also be sure to give him some love on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tedmorganphoto/
Look for next years Time Trials as soon as the MABRA Calendar is finalized in the spring.
For those interested in Cyclocross, we are again hosting our annual AACX cyclocross race at South River Farm in Edgewater MD. See the web site for more details! http://www.abrtcycling.com/events/aacx/

Thanks to all who came out on a sunny and brisk April morning. Thankfully it warmed up nicely by the time most of the 120+ riders went off. We did have some timing issues that were sorted out after the fact. Technology is a real time and labor savior but isn’t always perfect. Fortunately the judges still do hand recorded results as a backup which helped verify the results:
M/W 65+ results breakdown by 5 year increments are on the event page.
We look forward to seeing everyone again on August 20 for the second race! No doubt will be a little warmer. 😉
The Mid Atlantic Bicycle Racing Association 2022 annual road calendar has been finalized. The Church Creek Time Trials dates on the calendar are:
These will also be part of the 2022 MATTS series. We are back to the traditional larger gap between races – spring and summer – which lets you see your progression over the season if you do both. And it is likely to only be hot for the second event. As we get closer to the events we will open the registration on BikeReg and additional information will be posted on the individual race pages. It is envisioned that the races and fields will run in a similar manner as 2021. Mark your calendars!
Thanks for all who came out to the second Church Creek TT of the season.

We were really bummed the Inaugural Harwood Classic had to be canceled due to the COVID-19 Pandemic but understand it was necessary at that time. For the June Church Creek Time Trial, we delayed opening of registration to June 1 and have held out hope the improving situation with the pandemic would allow us to hold the June Time Trial, but we have just heard from our permitting authorities (Dorchester County and the Maryalnd State Highway Administration) that they will not allow us to hold this event on June 29. As a result, we are forced to cancel the June event. We will keep an eye toward the August Event based on the situation on the ground.
Thanks to all who came out for the quintessential hot and humid August time trail. We had a lot of new racers out today as this edition saw the largest number of one day licenses ever. Great to see so many new people.
The links to results, podium pictures and free downloadable high resolution on course pictures are available on the Church Creek Time Trial 2 page.

It was another hot August Church Creek Time Trial, but luckily the forecast thunderstorms never materialized and all racers were treated to the quintessential August experience. As with last year, we paid photographer Ted Morgan come over from Annapolis and shoot pictures of all competitors and make them available to all competitors at full resolution free of charge without watermarking. We think this is a very welcome perk we can easily offer competitors.
The results are posted on the event page in both PDF and at USA Cycling along with links to the on course and podium photos. Thanks again for coming out to the Eastern Shore, we know it can be a bit of a hike, but we try and reward you with the best experience possible!
