For those of you heading out to watch the race on Sunday please find some information below which might be of help.
The race starts at 9.30am. It is a neutralized start from the HQ. There will be an intermediate sprint at the end of lap 6. A start list can be found at www.cheshireclassic.co.uk/start-list/
The circuit – a map and video of the circuit can be found at www.cheshireclassic.co.uk/circuit/
Parking: there are several car parks in the area which are only 5-10 minute walk to the finish. Please do not park on the course. Use the car parks and, as they are pubs, why not treat yourself to a Sunday lunch at the end of the race!
The finish line is on Acton Lane, halfway up the “Cliff”. We all get excited when it comes to a bunch sprint but it is very important that you keep the finish line clear for the judges and the camera equipment. Do not jump out into the road to take a photo. Please listen out for instructions from the judges. There will also be marshals at the top of the climb, please make sure you help them to keep the riders safe.
Good places to watch – there are a number of good advantage points around the course. The bridge over the bypass is a good spot as you can see the riders go up and down the bypass and then go right past after the climb of the Cliff. We do ask that you do not spectate at the turn on to the bypass. This is a really hard junction to marshal with the riders turning on to a very busy road.
Delamere Dairy will be handing out samples on the Cliff so get involved!
We are very lucky to have this circuit and the support of the local community. Your help in looking after the course on the day will help us to keep the course for future events. Please take home any rubbish and support the marshals where you can. Thanks for your support. We hope you enjoy the race.
