COURSE & TACTICS

This is a challenging course. Each section of the course poses its own challenge. After turn 1, you rise slightly, leading into a downhill towards turn 2. The long straightaway has a few small rollers on it, leading into a quick descent, right into a sharp little uphill at turn 3. Then another short sharp uphill takes you into turn 4, where you battle false flats and a headwind (typically) all the way to the finish.

This group will lead out all other race categories. Racers in this group are expected to be of a high level of fitness & execute experienced bike handling, group riding and racing skill.
