Following the success of our road race over the past two years, Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers will be running a two day, three stage race on the weekend of Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th May under BC regulations. The event is a Regional A category event and is open to 2nd, 3rd & 4th cat riders.
Saturday 12th May will comprise of two time trial stages:
Stage 1 is a prologue time trial/hill climb of approx. 1 mile from Furzehill to the top of Colehill.
Stage 2 is time trial of approx. 10 miles which will be run on a slightly amended version of the P472c course, running from Furzehill, through Gaunts Common and Chalbury Common down to Horton. Then turning left up the Horton Rd to the Horton Inn and then left along the Cranborne Rd finishing just outside Wimborne.
Note: Both time trials are to be ridden on ordinary road bikes: no pointy hats, aero bars or disc wheels!
Stage 3 will be run on Sunday 13th May. This is a 56 mile road race covering 10 laps of the Lulworth Circuit: the same as last year’s road race.
Hopefully the format will prove attractive giving racers a tough weekend’s competition, being one of the few stage races in the region and allowing a good ‘testers’ v ‘roadies’ showdown!
BC ranking points will be awarded for the three stages on a Regional C+ basis and on a Regional A basis for the overall general classification, so plenty of ranking points on offer!
Entry is NOW OPEN online at the BC Website.
