2019 Eblens Series
Previous years have used a different course for each of the races. This has resulted in climbing ability taking precedence over sprinting ability. Course 34 has been selected as it is predominantly flat, promoting an event targeting sprinting ability. Using the same course for three events will allow riders to hone their tactics and training to maximize their performance. We will be using a modified Course 34 which directs riders down Hunt Rd on every lap. Right hand turn onto Sands Rd, left hand turn onto Oakley Rd. This keeps all the sprints on a familiar stretch of quieter back roads.
Three races are on 27th Jan, 10th Feb, 17th Feb. Series will be completed prior to the Tour of Goolwa.
Aim will be for riders to stay in the same grade for the three events. If there is an outlier in a grade, the handicapper has the discretion to move that rider. This should only be in exceptional circumstances, ie a new rider clearly in the wrong grade. If a rider is promoted to a higher grade, they will take any points earnt with them into the new grade.
Course 34 (modified), five laps at 56 km total distance. 3,2,1 points on laps 2,3 & 4. 6,4 & 2 points on the last (5th) lap of each race.
Club prize money paid for all three events. Place-getters each week are decided on the points for the day rather than places over the line (it’s a points race).
Eblens sponsorship is then paid out to first three place getters (accumulated score) for each grade. Series prize money will be paid out at the conclusion of the final event at the Eblens sponsored BBQ.
All members again encouraged to support Eblens Subaru Glenelg if ever considering a new or used car. Eblens Subaru have now sponsored this series for in excess of ten years.
Many thanks to EBLENS SUBARU for their ongoing sponsorship and support for this fantastic event.
