2019 Super Series Round 2 to be Lenswood Team Time Trial

July 19, 2019 CyclingSA

After an exciting and successful Lenswood Team Time Trial in 2018, the race will return for the 2019 Super Series. This year the TTT has been moved up to Round 2 on Sunday 29 September, on the back of an exciting opening round at Victoria Park.

The only Team Time Trial on the Super Series calendar will be a spectacular event, as cyclists ride some of the most scenic roads in the Adelaide hills in the heart of Spring.

The TTT is always exciting, as teams work in unison to finish with four of their starting eight riders to have their time recorded. For the strongest riders on the teams, it’s about controlling their effort. For the weakest, it’s about holding on with all that they have!

Starting at the Lenswood Cricket Club, the course will feature the entire length of Swamp Road. Framed by apple and pear orchards, it works its way through rolling hills before taking a turn at the finish to head up Stentiford Hill. This hill is just over 1km averaging over 10%.

Cycling SA CEO Lachie Ambrose says, “We are excited to return to Lenswood in 2019 for the Team Time Trial. The inclusion of a hilltop finish is very much atypical for a TTT and as shown last year, presents a massive tactical dilemma for the teams. Do they hold their climbers back? Or do they fully commit on the flatter roads and hope that it pays off later? We know the round isn’t for everyone, but that’s what makes for an exciting team series!”  

The 2019 Super Series runs from 21 September until 24 November 2019. Entries for the series are now open: https://www.cyclingsuperseries.com.au/
