Actually, it might be more accurate to say it was suspended for 2008.
One of the purposes of the competition was to get track riders to ride the road time trials. There were only two long time trials on the MCF calendar this year: one in May and the State Road TT on June 7. At the encouragement of the Minnesota Bike Fest folks, we promoted an elite national track event, the Minnesota Fixed Gear Classic on June 7-8, the weekend before the Nature Valley Grand Prix. The track event was a great success and a good time was had by all. We plan on holding it again in 2009 but the date may change.
Unsurprisingly, none of the local track riders wanted to ride the Minnesota State Road Time Trial on the morning of June 7 and then the Fixed Gear Classic in the evening. Ergo, a major objective of the competition would not be met.
If there is a long road time trial (~40 km) in 2009 that doesn't conflict with a national class track event at the velodrome, we'll look at doing the TTOY again in 2009.
