with a lot less fanfare than the 2009 tour de france route unveiling, i present to you the rides for this weekend. just like the tour, there are flat stages, hilly stages and some brutal climbs. very much unlike the tour, we are cramming all this excitement into two action packed days.
saturday will see us keeping things close to home with a circuit past jerry’s palace in city beach before a loop past cottelsoe and dalkeith. just the slum neighbourhoods really.
sunday will see the return of the f_ckenberg climb in mt nasura so crack out the 27 tooth cogs or compact cranks because if you stop on this one, you won’t be able to start again. ryan currently leads the mountain points classification, but with a chance that he will be racing instead, there is a maximum of 50 points on offer for a few riders to springboard past to take the october prize. it should make for a competitive sunday ride.
