History of the CVC Time Trials
The first 10 Mile Time Trial was held in August of 1976 (!) making it 40 years that the time trials have been held. Europa employees Joel Berry and Randy Gaffney organized the event and charged $1 which has continued to this day.  Through the years, the Time Trials have been on several different courses, generally due to road construction on 27th street. We have held them south of Waterloo, at George Wyth, and East of New Hartford among other places.

Originally, the series was in the fall, then sometime in the 80’s the spring series started.  The current Start/Finish location started in the mid 80’s also as traffic and construction of UNI facilities increased. In the late 80’s another club held the event for one year. Then in 1989 Europa took the event over and have been hosting 8 time trials a year ever since.
