The SI Tour Diary

Saturday 11th April 

Suffice to say with over 20 club members completing solo rides (not racing!) in the first stage of the DCC SI tour I’ve been blown away by the involvement.

Thoughts now turn to stage 2 which starts tomorrow but will have a twist! Due to the nature of the course, there are traffic lights and a couple of busy roads to navigate, this will be classified as sprinters stage. Therefore, an average time will be awarded to all riders who complete the stage. So relax and enjoy the ride! However not too much, as there is short STRAVA sprint segment at the end of the stage that will earn you GC time bonuses for the 3 fastest times on the following basis:

  • 1st – 10 minutes
  • 2nd – 7 minutes
  • 3rd – 5 minutes

The sprint segment is the Dog “n” Gun Run (0.78 miles 0%) which starts at Leigh Road close to the finish (38.7 miles into the stage).

Additionally, there will be 3 KOM STAVA segments to go for:

  1. St Bartholomew’s Climb (3% 1.25 miles) – this is the familiar Station Road and Church Ride climb and starts approximately 7 miles into the stage leading into Wickham Bishops
  2. Try your brakes to Primary School (4% 0.45 miles) – this is the climb into Stisted village and starts approximately 19.5 miles into the stage.
  3. Up Bovingdon Road from Church St Bocking (1% 2.22 miles) – long climb on the B1053 and starts approximately 23.5 miles into the stage.

Results to date (Stage 1 closes today!)
