6 weeks into our league, and the points table is beginning to take shape. In the top 6 riders, we have 4 clubs represented with Armagh Down firmly planted at the top of the table.
Marshal points will be calculated and added at the end of the season to give riders their final total.
The week sees us returning to the “Ravensdale Circuit”
This route, to be completed twice has a little bit of everything, a flat section as the riders head out the Carlingford road before turning left towards Ravensdale and the steady, though not overly steep climb to the village. After the village the road does continue to ramp up and becomes quite steep before reaching its highest point.
Then there is a fast technical descent before the long straight downhill section back to the Carlingford road. The route will see bunches breakup and the finish requires the riders tackle a long drag to the line at Sportsmans. At 40km long expect to see groups of three to four riders as opposed to large groups.
Please take some time this week to review the race groups to ensure you both sign on and race in the correct group.
Please make sure you have your chip with you - No Chip = No Points
Please make sure you sign on - No Sign On = No Points
