Rice Road Hill - BBC Series

Event Chair: Tom Robinson

COURSE & TACTICS

DO NOT PARK IN THE FIRE STATION LOT. A relatively short course that will grind you down, truly an interval workout course. There is one steep climb and one very quick decent that leads right into a sharp turn at turn 2. The climb, immediately following turn 3, is up Rice Hill. It is sharply steep at the bottom then eventually starts to level off. The finish straight is completely flat, but near then end, has a slight rise & opens up from tree cover and almost always means a stiff wind to deal with for the sprint to the line.

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.
