A shorter course, used for 5 laps, with 5 times up Southwick hill which proves testing for every group. The course provides a sense of unpredicability and can be heavily influenced by the weather!
Some sweeping S bends and sharp corners do feature but the hill is very much the key feature.
The course kicks off with some rolling hills early in the lap which can split the gruops up early on. Shortly followed by a long airfield straight by the Husbands Bosworth Glider station which often has very high winds, this course can certainly providesome hard races!
A long drag to the finish after a sharp left turn at Welford can often catch those riders out who try to go too early at the finish!
