Day 1: Saturday

The start is on Black Rocks Bridge and we race North along Mooball Creek to the town bridge with a tight U-turn, before traveling South along the surfing beach back past the start line to the far southern Wooyung corner, another tight u-turn. We then cross the finish line in front of the Blackrock Bridge, and roll north completing a loop on Overall Drive to re-enter the BlackRock’s Bridge from the suburb. The road has been partially refurbished, is dead in many spots, and seems to be uphill on the way out and uphill on the way back. Great coffee in town and cooling swim in the creek when finished.

Day 2: Sunday

The figure of eight course has been used a number of times for the Battle and again we will race clockwise around the circuit. The course is fast downhill and has a numerous turns with an uphill finish. The centre island will be barricaded this year.

Day 3: Monday

Tyalgum loop is a traditional Battle course featuring fast flats and lumping small climbs and two major climbs back into Tyalgum. This is a left-hand turn course only with no KOM/QOM or Sprint points. The feed zone will be open for each lap given expected heat. This is single lane racing and small convoys.

Day 4: Tuesday

The Tomewin road race will be a difficult and challenging effort for Men and Women. The climbs through Bilambil are strenuous and followed by fast descents. This is a left-hand turn course with no Sprint points but extra KOM/QOM points for the challenging Towewin assault to the finish line. The feed zone will be open for each lap given expected heat. This is single lane racing and small convoys.

  6. A progressive racing program with increasing difficultly
  7. No weekend road racing due to traffic increased loading and limited policing availability
