WTRL #101 – Greater London 8
Course Notes – 1 Laps + Lead-In – 24.1km
New course this week, never WTRL’d before! Could be as little as 30 mins for some of the best teams, so a bit different from #100.
The only significant climb is Box Hill, arriving after 15.6km. Other than this, there is the 500m climb that appears once during the Lead-In, as you turn right off the Embankment and head up to Trafalgar Sq. This comes at about 3.5km… oh, and don’t think Box Hill ends at the arch, you need to push on over the steep section 500m later before you get any relaxation.
Outside of this incline and a couple of rises out of tunnels or escalators, you should be able to safely carry out lots of turns on the front, fully utilising a TTT rotation.
|3.5km||500m||5%||Drag up to Trafalgar Sq – Agree w/kg for group!|
|10.5km||1km||2-4%||Double bump incline out of tunnel, before right turn downhill|
|Minor caution only, if someone just coming off a turn|
|15.6km||3km||4% Av||Am sure you have ridden this before|
|Watch out for the little extra kick after the banner @ 19.2km|
|Lots of Supertuck opportunities on the way down|
|22.6km||Escalators! Hit them early with power|
|Don’t wait until you on them to start pushing – you will get dropped!|
|24km||Build for Sprint Finish – Race Each Other!|
