BC Technical Regulation 13.3 – No rider shall be entitled to any prime or lap prize unless he completes the full distance of the race, or satisfies the Chief Commissaire that his retirement is due to some good and sufficient reason.
The race roll out from the HQ will be neutralised along Longwood Road toward the crossroad junction with Belmore Lane (M). At the junction turn right onto Belmore Lane where, once safe, the race will be de-neutralised. Immediately after the crest of the first hill the road drops away to the left followed by a sharp right hand bend where extreme care is needed. After a series of rolling hills the race turns left (M) into Salt Lane and climbs up to The Milburys Pub crossroads. Just before cresting the Salt Lane climb riders will cross the finish line for the first time (there will be a further 7 laps). At the crossroads (M) the race turns left for a fast decent followed by a sharp climb to the Longwood Road junction, at the junction the race turns left (M) and descends to the junction with Belmore Lane where the race will turn left (M) to complete the circuit. Riders will pass the finish line 8 (eight) times in total.
Once riders cross the finish line on the first occasion the lap board will show 7 laps to go, thereafter there will be 5 sprint laps for Prime Awards, followed by the bell lap (1 to go). *Please note BC Technical Regulation 13.3 - this prevents any rider sprinting for a Prime only to climb off after the finish line. If any rider fails to finish following a Prime Award he will be removed and then all riders move up one slot. Happy sprinting!
