What is the VTTA?

The Veterans Time Trials Association (VTTA) exists to promote racing against the clock for riders over 40.

Why Join?

Whilst most CTT events are run purely on actual time, as a VTTA member your race times can also be ‘age adjusted’ to level the playing field across all ages.

Your age adjusted time (AAT) is used for a system of personal bests, known as Standards. Your Standard for each distance is increased each year in line with your age. If you beat it you qualify for a Standard Award, and your new target is to beat that by at least 1 second. If you don’t beat it, you try again the next year until you do!

If you ride a VTTA National Championship event, it’s your AAT which is used for the results. Anyone can enter, but you have to be a member to be placed.

There are 3 VTTA season-long competitions: The Best All Rounder (BAR), The Short Distance Competition, and The Three Distance Competition.

  • The BAR is the same as the CTT’s British Best All Rounder (BBAR), including your best 50, 100 and 12 hour, except the VTTA uses age adjusted times and distances rather than actual.
  • The Short Distance uses your age adjusted average speed across 2x10 mile and 2x25 mile events, and
  • The Three Distance which is the same, but for your best 25, 50 and 100 mile event.

The VTTA maintains the UK’s time trialling age records. To get a record you just need to beat the best actual time by anyone your age or older.
News and updates and news on all of the above, and much more, are circulated to members each quarter in The Veteran magazine.
