Emerald Glen Handicap Race 2

Due to having to move away from Park Ave as a racing circuit - we've searched the district for some new places to race.

This has the potential to be a fantastic circuit - and we'll give it a trial for just a couple of races to see how it pans out.

The course is a good length - has nice wide roads - requires minimal traffic management setup (which makes life A LOT easier for the people doing course setup and takedown) - requires only 2 marshals - has parking - has toilets - has a dedicated, off the road, bike path to the circuit from both Raumati South and Paekakariki - and has very easy access from the Expressway.   It has a lot going for it on paper - so lets see how it pans out in actuality.  It's also got quite a bit of change in elevation - which will make it different from our usual Tuesday night racing and add an extra dimension.

We will run it as a handicap race with the slower groups leaving first and having to work together to either stay away from the groups behind - or to catch any groups in front.   

Racing will start at 6:30 with Registration open from 5:45

There are carparks and toilets available at the southern end of the course at Whareroa Farm (just off the roundabout).   Please park here and ride down to the start/finish.
