About Lung Buster

The Lung Buster Time Trial series is a five-part series of competitive cycling events. The events take place here in Western North Carolina at five different routes, and the goal is to provide a fun and professional race experience for cyclists while adhering to safe social distancing guidelines. All levels and abilities are welcome!

This series of events is a great way to challenge yourself and provide goals. It doesn’t matter what your current speed is; it is about pushing yourself beyond what you would normally push during a regular, solo training ride.

The Lung Buster Time Trial Series is about being part of a community of cyclists who strive for the same goal. It is also about supporting small business. Our iDaph Events company has been changed significantly due to COVID-19, and your participation in events like these help keep our business alive!

History of the Lung Buster

The Lung Buster Time Trial Series was an iDaph event a couple of years ago, but it took a hiatus when time trial series in general started to wane, due to the popularity of cyclocross and gravel events. But COVID-19 changed that.

When COVID-19 hit us, the cycling governing bodies came to the conclusion that time trials are the safest way to have a goal and some fun right now. As soon as I thought about bringing life back into the series, and I figured out there was a way to do it safely and quasi-virtual, it was a no brainer for me.

Time Trial Series offers safe social distancing options

Due to the pandemic and social distancing and event gathering restrictions, the 2020 Lung Buster Time Trial Series has a twist with extended durations for participation for each event. A Brand New Virtual Series is also available, where cyclists can participate ANYWHERE at ANYTIME!

The five different courses will be marked by our iDaph Team, and we will have certain evenings where we will come and cheer on the cyclists as they complete their segments.

Our unique mix of different racing environments allows riders of different strengths and focuses to level the playing field amongst competitors. Also, having five separate events means that one poor showing will not ruin your opportunity to do well in the series as a whole. Whether you’re an elite time trial champion or a recreational rider, our time trial seris offers multiple categories to choose from.

Remember: You don’t have to kill it. Your personal best is what you can do RIGHT NOW.

Start from wherever you are right now. It doesn’t matter if you were breaking records a few years ago in time trials, triathlons, etc.. Or if you were in the best shape of your life six months ago and you let it go due to stress, COVID19, life, kids… it is fine to start wherever you are at in your life and go for it!

Your personal best if yours in this present moment it is what you can do right now!

We as a community of cyclists need something fun and challenging to look forward to in this uncertain and difficult time.
