Team President Ed Camerena announced the second in a series of time trials was to be held, Sunday, November 12, 2000.
Course Description: 7.5 miles through Santiago Canyon from the Jamboree side, west to east. The start line location is at the top of "Dump Hill" just east of the intersection of the Santiago Canyon Road and overpass to the 241 Toll Road. Course starts with a long down hill followed by rollies and flat terrain. The course is challenging but no difficult climbs. The finish line is just past the Modjeska Road intersection with Santiago Canyon Road.

Ed wrote: "Time trials are among the most difficult of road races as they require a sustained high effort over the entirety of the race. No drafting, no backing off. While the course started of with a nice long downhill, it was not an easy course.
Conditions today were tough with a low temperature and cold head wind making for times that were three to four minutes slower than last March when the winning time was 20:05. Today's fastest time was posted by Ken Isaak with a time of 24: 07. His time last March was 20:54.
It was a beautifully clear morning ... at the start, we were amazed to be able to see the skyscrapers all the way in downtown Los Angeles!!
On behalf of myself and all of the riders in the Time Trial, I extend our deepest appreciation to the volunteers who made this a success. Thanks go to Chuck Bramwell and Lucille Rhodes for helping with the sign ups and to Chuck for adding the results to the web site along with results and photos of the March time trial. Thanks also to Doug Patterson, Wendy Reynolds, and John Burgess who worked at the start line and to Lucille Rhodes, Rhonda Myers, Jamie Russel, Carmen Gray, and Debbie Kelly who worked the finish."
