The first time trial of the series is a good’un. Run on a 17 mile undulating course the route goes out past Topsham and up onto Woodbury Common before a long sweeping decent to the finish. All the roads are single carriageway so for those who are nervous about duel carriageways this is the perfect one for you. The slight hill makes it more of a roadwoman’s course than any others in the series, but then the pure testers will still be putting in a good showing I am sure.
Entry closes on the 18th March and there is no entry on the line, so get your entries in now to avoid disappointment.
