ITT  Course Notes:

Course Notes:
A direct 12.5 km ride from Ashhurst to Pohangina along Pohangina Road

Please note this is a slightly different course from the last year.
To avoid congestion and to increase rider safety the stage will start in Ashhurst and end in Pohangina Village.

The Start and roll out is located at the top of Cambridge Ave in Ashhurst and will end in Pohangina on Pohangina Road just before the village.

All riders must roll out prior to their start.

We strongly advise all drivers heading out to pick up their athletes up in Pohangina to please be very careful of our riders still on the course. These are country roads, with not a lot of parking on the side of the road for spectating.
If you wish to watch the finish, please park your vehicle in the Pohangina village and walk down to the finish line to avoid congestion and respect the locals nature strips. There is parking available in front of the church on Pohangina Road or along Finnis Road.

Start times are published at the back of the booklet – Link to start times can be found here *after all entries are in.
It’s the riders responsibility to arrive in time for their start and roll out.

*ITT Start Times to be published once entries close

Roll out will be at the start of the stage and all riders must present themselves at rollout a minimum of 5 minutes before your start time.

Please check in with officials at the start so they can acknowledge you are in the start area. Once you have rolled out, you are in the start shute and must stay in sequence.

The course picture is above. There are hills, in particular on your Strava there will come up a segment called Pig Hill.

All riders are to keep left at all times. There will be marshals on course to officiate this and careless riding, needlessly not staying left, will be reported to the Commissaires.

After the finish you can be picked up by your parent / caregiver or can ride back to Ashhurst School, obeying all road rules and keeping left (Please see parking instructions above)
