1. Both LONG and SHORT courses will flow into each other on the firetrail off Brittle Gums:
SHORT course girls head into Holden Creekline then Fenceline.
LONG Course girls turn right and head over causeway into Paparazzi riding this the *wrong way towards the Tunnel.
LONG Course girls turn right off Wattle Happen onto Muck Raker riding this the * wrong way and exiting on firetrail.
2. Both courses will flow into each other at the end of the 4X track behind the SFP Maps, (same as 2016 & 2017) continue into transition.
The goal is for everyone to complete the short or long course, however there is NO PENALTY should you not complete all laps.
To be realistic, a very slow rider will average minimum 11km per hr. We may have to stop riders going out for their 4th lap after 1:00pm.
COURSE CLOSES AT 2:30pm.
