Not sure what last years was, but we did a ride on Monday of the marked course (Inc party line) and was just on the 1hour. Hit some sections pretty solidly, but mostly just a cruisey pace for fire roads etc.. The average lap time I would estimate come race day would be around the hour mark, with quicker riders pushing 45-50min and those there for fun anywhere up to 1:30For those guys who have ridden some or all of the teams track... what's your estimate on an average lap time?
And for comparison, what was last years? Somewhere in the vicinity of an hour..?
I'm not sure about actual kms, but the course imho will flow better this year with plenty of fireroad overtaking room, the ascent is not steep, short and punchy and the track is in great condition. It should be a wonderful spectacle at night to see so many riders out over the mountain.Thanks, that's useful. That's quicker than I thought it would be... but that's good news.
I thought someone said that track length was up around 18km? Was that about right?
Where did you get the course map from? Scott24hr.com.au still says it will be posted 2 weeks before... but its not!
1. Read the News on the Scott website - course maps available.Where did you get the course map from? Scott24hr.com.au still says it will be posted 2 weeks before... but its not!
Can anyone confirm the NO CARS in campsites rule?? They've always said this I thought, but it's never been policed? That really chnages things.
Yeah sorry found the map.
Thanks for posting up. Is there any word on security for this car park? Will there be patrols going round?
There is security out there from the time the event village opens. As to where its going to be patrolling, can all the criminals who read Rotorburn not read the next sentence please ...Thanks for posting up. Is there any word on security for this car park? Will there be patrols going round?
Makin' Trax finished Willow's Trail yesterday arvo and we marked it as part of the course, hopefully some rain overnight has helped bed it in. You pop out of Little Seymore (the gutter will get filled in soon BTW) and have ~50m on fireroad before a short pinch up and into Willow's Trail. Unfortunately the really wet weather of September means we haven't been able to connect it to Wombat Junction. The trail will be dedicated on Thursday, time TBA.my ratio was kilometre based!
I think you may have the middle part incorrectly labelled (wholly) as fireroad trail.
They have cut a new section in that runs parallel to the fireroad, after you descend 'Little Seymour'.
It then pops out onto the fireroad just above the trailhead to 'double dissolution'.
