@Jafe correct, I did another oopsie, I'll probably take a break from setting C4s until I can sort my clue backlog out
 
Speaking of taking a break, I'm also gonna take a break from making this puzzle... I've lost interest for a few reasons so I'm just gonna save it for next Advent Calendar if I'm still active by then

CCCC: Not a meek, introverted biker appears in this music video (4,2,2)
 
10:18 AM

@Jafe ALCARAZ (Carlos Alcaraz, currently ranked #1 tennis player in the world by the Association of Tennis Professionals) = No T (time) in Alcatraz (former US prison)
 
11:31 AM
@oAlt that's right
