FTF 2009 Winter XC Series Round 2

Winter Series # 2 – Harkaway “heads up”

The FTF committee was once again hard at work yesterday ‘scouting’ out the Harkaway course that we made last year. The course is in perfect condition and ready to race.

Just to give everyone a bit of a heads up, the race format is not your traditional XC race course consisting of a 5-6km loop, instead the “short and intense” loop is around 2km long. It’s not overly technical, but it will certainly be a close race. So please expect a few short sharp climbs. A perfect MTB loop!

So since the course is so short, there will be only one class racing at a time. The actual race time won’t go for that long (around 20min or so depending on the weather). So after each class has done their 1st race for the day, the 2nd and final race will be in reverse direction. It will be like racing on two different courses on the same day. We’ll then add the scores up for your two races to determine the eventual winner. While your class is not racing, you’ll be able to watch the other classes, what a perfect atmosphere.
