LENSWOOD TEAM TIME TRIAL - Postponed
After the Rd 1 Vic Park Criterium is done, we're heading back up to Lenswood for a favourite from last year, the Lenswood Team Time Trial! Teams will again need to think critically about their tactics - do they make up as much time as they can on the flats, and hope their riders have enough in the legs for the climb, or do they save their climbers for the finish and use up their sprinters to protect them?
This Team Time trial takes on a brutal course made up of two out-and-back-style sections - riders will head North from the Lenswood Oval along Swamp Rd toward Lobethal Rd, then turn back toward Greenhill Rd and ride the length of Swamp Rd before turning back again, this time turning left up Stentiford Rd. The grade on Stentiford hits a whopping 16.2% which typically decimates a team's tactics and leaves everyone scrambling for the wheel of their strongest climber.
- These are estimated category starts
- Individual CAT 3 entries will start at approximatley 830 am
|CAT 2 WOMEN||9:30||16.4km||8|
|CAT 2 MASTERS||9:55||16.4km||8|

Parking is available at Lenswood Oval (where each team will start), less than 30km from Adelaide via Greenhill Rd or Lobethal Rd. Participants and spectators are asked if approaching by car to PLEASE enter via Stentiford Rd from the South and NOT Swamp Rd from the North, especially once racing is begun at 8:30am.
