“Local Riders, Local Races” is proud to sponsor the Dorset Two Day Race and hope the prize fund reflects Race Director, Dave Wade’s energy & enthusiasm for cycling in Dorset. Dave’s team of helpers all deserve recognition without whom, the event simply would not happen. Ultimately though, bike racing is about the riders, it’s always about the riders. Ride hard, race aggressively but look after each other on the road, go home on Sunday safe, with tired legs and no regrets.

Protection for riders and the convoy will be provided by motorcyclists from the National Escort Group and static marshals. Safety cover for riders is limited to when you are behind the lead car and in front of the final vehicle in the convoy. This is normally the First Aid Vehicle. If you are dropped from the bunch and behind the final vehicle in the convoy then you are no longer in the safety zone provided by the race convoy and marshalls You therefor cannot assume that vehicles will give way to you or that marshals will be in place at junctions. You must obey the rules of the road and follow the race route exactly until you are directed otherwise by a race official.

STAGE TWO ROAD RACE
Stage two is a 5.2 mile loop around Furzebrook Village hall. Under neutralization, the route goes from Furzebrook Village Hall travelling North to the A351. Riders then turn left onto the A351 and after about 500 meters turn left onto Grange Road. Now travelling south along Grange Road the uphill section starts rising steadily. After 1.7 miles the course turns left up to East Creech. When you reach the crest of East Creech you will pass the finish line and note the lap board saying 9 laps to go, the race is on. You then ride past the farm and duck pond before turning left back onto Furzebrook Road and down past the event HQ. then back up to East Creech.
NOTE: The Commissaries will decide on the day when and where to denaturalize this stage race but I suspect it will be before the East Creech Climb.
STAGE FOUR ROAD RACE
Stage four is a 20.3 mile circuit deep in Hardy Country. You will lap this circuit three times. Starting under neutralization the race will move from race HQ onto the Crossways Road the B3390. Going north east the course proceeds along the road passing the finish line at Affpuddle Forest where you will see the lap board displaying 3 laps to go. Continue on until it turns left(4.0Mls) onto the Puddletown Road (the old a35). Now heading towards Dorchester the course passes Tolpuddle and Puddletown. Riders please note that when passing through these villages cars will be parked either side, please be careful. At Puddletown there are traffic lights that are being controlled by Dorset Police. (They aint cheap) If they (the traffic lights) are red please do not stop as this is probably the first time you can legally ride through a red light. Moving out of Puddletown the course continues on via two roundabouts going under the A35 Dual Carriageway then rejoining the old A35 (Yellowham Hill)(8.1 mls). The course continues on going back over the A35 Dual Carriageway then turns right to Higher Bockhampton and then onto Lower Bockhampton. At the T Junction at the end of Bockhampton Lane the course turns left going through West Stafford and then to the T Junction where the course turns left and then immediate left again at Woodland View Farm and then back to the Crossways Road B3390. Turn left onto B3390 then past the start finish line at Affpuddle and recirculate.
I will not circulate maps by email. Maps will be available at HQ and Google maps is easy to follow.
STAGE 1 & 3
STAGE 2 & 4
I hope you have a great 2 days, I wish you all the very best of luck and may the best person win.
