Cycling World Time Trial Championships

Welcome to the 6-12-24 Hour World Time Trial Championships (WTTC)!  Every November the best endurance time trial racers from around the world gather in Borrego Springs, a quiet Southern California resort community.  They come to determine who is the fastest in the world, to set personal records, and to spend time with friends in the bicycle racing community.

Borrego Springs offers the perfect setting – the stark beauty of the Anza-Borrego Desert set against the majesty of the Coast Range.  Giant metal sculptures by Ricardo Breceda add to the beauty and add mystique.  Sunrises and sunsets are spectacular.  November weather should be ideal - warm days and cool nights – perfect for racing.

The course is flat and fast, featuring a main loop of 18.0 miles with 347’ of elevation change and a finishing loop of 4.8 miles with 63’ of elevation change.  County road crews prepare the road surface before the race, making repairs and sweeping to insure optimal conditions.  Racers compile as many miles as possible in 6, 12 or 24 hours.

The 6-12-24 Hour WTTC in Borrego Springs is the perfect way to close out the season.  Borrego Springs is very accessible - a short drive from the major population centers of Southern California - San Diego, Orange County and Los Angeles.
