Southport Bluff Hill Climb and Criterium
This weekend is a pearler for racing! After the Time Trial Champs on Saturday we have an awesome day of racing on Sunday in Bluff. Southport are sponsoring our Sunday Hill Climb and we also have the last Criterium in the Summer Series. We are keen for everyone to enter both races - whether you love hills or not, it's a good story to tell the grandchildren about the day you raced up Bluff Hill!

The Hill Climb has a 10.30am report with start time at 11am, from the intersection with Pearse Street (at the top of town before you head up the hill). Rather than a Time Trial, we are going to race up the hill in bunches:
A Grade will start at 11am
B Grade - 11.03am
C Grade - 11.06am
Juniors Div 1 - 11.09am
Juniors Div 2 - 11.12
Juniors Div 3 - 11.15am
There will be a trophy for the fastest time up Bluff Hill. With Southport on board there will also be prize money up for grabs!
The final Criterium in the summer series will start at 1.30pm (1pm report) at Athelney Street (by the Argyle Park & Camping Ground). The Criterium will be raced around the Athelney, Burrows, Parrett and Gregory Streets Circuit. Juniors Div 3 will race for 10mins + 2 Laps Juniors Div 2 will race for 15mins + 2 Laps C Grade and Juniors Div 1 will race for 20 mins + 3 Laps B Grade will race for 30 mins + 3 Laps A Grade will race for 30mins + 3 Laps
