Tolero Racing is proud to host the Flapjack Flats 20K Time Trial (TT and Collegiate TTT). The time trial will be held at Picacho Peak, Arizona, just east of Picacho Peak State Park and north of the Bowlins Travel Center. This location is conveniently located halfway between Tucson and Phoenix. We will have the first rider off at 9:00 a.m. While COVID-19 measures are no longer in effect, please feel free to continue measures as you feel necessary. We do encourage riders to bring spectators.

First Start will be at 9:00 a.m. Start times will be posted on this site (toleroracing.net) by 8:00 p.m. Friday, February 9th, 2024. Your start time will also be written on your bib number.

This is a USA Cycling Sanctioned Event, so you have to have an active license or purchase a One Day license (available on BikeReg when you register) to race. It’s up to you to have a current license, and Bike Reg will let you register with an expired license.

Registration will only be online at bikereg.com.  Day of race registration is not available. You must sign your waiver release online when you register for the race. We will not have your waiver to sign at the event.

Merckx bikes are legal road bikes for mass start events (i.e. no disk wheels, tri-spoke, quad-spoke, no aero bars) just like Eddie Merckx would have ridden. There are no clothing or helmet restrictions. Any wheel that is legal for a mass start road race is legal for a Merckx race. Each wheel must have a minimum of 16 spokes, regardless of the rim depth.

Packet pick up will start no earlier than 7:30 AM (close at 8:45) on race day. Refer to the image below for packet location. Your number will have your start time printed on it. After receiving your packet, please follow the instructions given by the volunteers assisting with parking. 

Proper placement of the bib # is necessary so our officials can accurately read your number and record your time when you cross the finish line.  The photos below show the proper placement for kneelers/upright (right back) and recumbents (right leg).

The Time Trial will be held near Picacho Peak State Park, conveniently located halfway between Tucson and Phoenix. This is a flat course. At the start, you will head north and at approximately the 10km point, execute a 180-degree turn and return to the finish. There will be no warming up on course after the first rider has started.  If we have sufficient manpower available, we will have a holder available at the start. Only our official holder may be used. If no holder is available, you will start with one foot down.

While low traffic, racers must still stay to the right side of the road!
There will be race officials on the course to enforce this rule!

Finishing riders should exit the finish area after they are done racing.

Riders should discard all refuse in trash receptacles placed at the start line or bib pick-up.
