Message from Alan:

 

"Hi Tim

Please note that pre-entries have been extended to Wednesday the 21st. The advantage for riders is that pre-entries get seeded into batches, whereas the latse entries will be put in the last batch. Course was ridden this weekend past and is riding really well.

Loook forward to seeing you there.

Alan"

Hi Tim,

 

Are the routes the same as last year?

As far as I know they are very similar!

Obviously the start and finish will be slightly different as the venue has changed, but other then that its the same.

 

I will post maps and profiles as soon as I have them.
