I had a couple of queries about the rumours on a new course for this, which are true. It'll be happening at the Devil's Elbow, roughly this course: ridewithgps.com/routes/9530633

Full description from Dave Mc below:

The course will run from the entrance of Brockey lane to the first crest, finish line at the leading edge of the painted 'slow' sign on the road.

The finish line is on a narrow stretch but there is a wide field gateway 20 metres after the line from where we'll do timekeeping and people can catch their breath.

The distance is 500m exactly if riders stay on the correct side of the road (and there will be guaranteed disqualification if anyone does not), average gradient is 11.5%. For anyone on strava the closest comparable segment is Devils Elbow to 1st crest and the fastest time on that is about 1'32" by Aaron O'Donoghue. Distance and gradient are incorrect on Strava though because a) the start is in a different spot, and b) the hairpins confuse the GPSs.

The second last round of the league is the Hillclimb, and this year it will be a classic sprint climb up the Devil's elbow. While it is very much shorter than usual it isn't going to be any easier- this is a brutally steep climb and anyone who wants a chance of a placing will have to go full gas from start to finish.

The league winner has already been settled but there are two more titles to be fought for each gender next week- the Hillclimb championships and the BAR. As always with the time trials there are points for the 1st six in each category, so even if you're not in the running for a medal there are still points to be picked up which might still make the difference for the minor placings in the league.

Registration is by way of this thread .

Great to see so many club members out for a recce tonight, including Dave Mc on a single speed light-as-a-feather custom job. Word is he has his eye on the BAR prize...

Don't forget those aren't club league members are welcome to come take part and get a time - just post in the racing registration thread along with the regular racers.

Ann Horan has just alerted me to the announcement of the National HC Champs for 3rd October in Cork: ridewithgps.com/routes/9795336

If you go well tonight, this could be your next target!

Also, it's on in Ballingeary, so I expect a certain Corkman might want to take a crack!
