A and B are 48km.
4 laps over Mount Marshall and back.
C and D are 36km.
3 laps over Mount Marshall and back.
All grades start at 2pm.
The course will be a shortened version of our regular route to avoid the bad parts of Avondale Rd. The course will stay on Marshall Mount Rd, with the start/finish point at the Dog Track. That will be the turnaround point at one end, and the other end will be over the top of Marshall Mount and before Calderwood Rd (same as the Dinnerville turnaround point).
The race will be four laps totalling about 48km. Four times over Marshall Mount will no doubt sting the legs (three laps, 36km for C and D grade).
We have traffic marshals stopping the minimal vehicles at all turn arounds and intersections.
Races start at 2pm. You need to be there at least 15 mins prior so you can register and pin on your number. The cost for general club races is $15 paid on the day.
How to get there
Drive and park somewhere near the corner of Penrose Drive and Avondale Road.
Or if you are keen for a warm up pre-race, a pack ride leaves Figtree Cellars carpark one hour before the race. The pack ride quite often heads for a coffee and chat post-race.
Good luck to all racing!
Riders from different clubs will be combined in each grade. That is, there will be one A grade, one B grade, etc. There will NOT be separate races held for SSCC and ICC. Positions will be awarded based on riders from your club only.
Finally, the racing is still open to all other clubs. The more the merrier.
