Latrobe City Point To Point Race

Round 4 of the club champs is going to take place in the hills around Toongabbie/Glengarry in the form of a 40km point to point race. This race is going to have everything, fire road, 4wd track,sweet single track,climbing ,descending a bit of everything really.

For those who want to push hard and race it will be a good hit out but for those who just want to cruise think of it as a 35 km trailride. Approximate race time would see the faster riders finishing sub 3 hours where as the average punter will be looking at 3-4 hours. A sag wagon will pick up dead bikes (and riders) at designated points around the course should it all get too hard, also if needed there will be a feed station for gels drinks etc at the half way mark of the race.

The start/finish area will be signposted from the Maffra road in Toongabbie, most reasonably skilled riders will achieve this course but be warned it will be slippery in places and unfit riders may not be smiling as much at the end as they were at the start.

UPDATE: There will be a second course offered for riders not wanting to complete the full course. This second ride will be the final 12km only. However, this course will not contribute score any club championship points, only riders undertaking the full course will be eligible for championship points.
