Our 2018 course draws on our experience of this venue and competitor feedback. The course has generally shifted west, away from the lower laying land which becomes waterlogged during the wettest weather. The course is now slightly more undulating, spectator friendly and weather resilient.
Key features include:
Removal of the gravelled castle courtyard sector due to competitor feedback re single bike competitors experiencing bike problems.
Introduction of a common finish straight for kids and adult races to give youngsters the fullest experience.
New hard surfaced start leg with fast first turn.
