We are running the Summer Points Series as a series of 3 handicapped road races, an individual time trial and a shortish hill climb.   

The beauty of handicap racing is that your group must work together to stay away from any chasing groups and to catch any groups in front of you.  In handicap racing, you learn lots of valuable lessons in making your group as efficient as possible by lapping smoothly and consistently.

Here's the detail...

Approximately 38km Handicapped Road Race (4 laps of a 9.52km course).

The race starts and finishes on Rutherford Drive in Waikanae Beach (see map below).   Registration is at the club trailer which will be at the start/finish.

Bunches will leave in groups of similar ability - with the slower groups leaving first - with faster groups starting at intervals subsequently.  If the handicapper has calculated correctly - each group will have a chance to have someone from their group win the event - but that will depend on how well your group works together to stay away from those chasing you - and catching bunches in front of you.  

There is a group for everyone of all abilities and all are welcome.  If you haven't raced before - make it known at registration and we can direct you to someone who can fill you in on the details.

The first group will get away at 6:00 pm sharp - with subsequent groups to follow.

Points break down to be confirmed.
