Sprint Start List

Final Information for Saturday’s Sprint and Middle Events
1. Saturday am:  Be sure to arrive at Maryborough between 8.30 and 9.00 am as Sprint start times commence promptly at 10 am at the velodrome. Toilets will be open at the Jack Pascoe Reserve and at the Velodrome. The ride from the Jack Pascoe Reserve (old YMCA) along Inkerman, Napier, Brougham and High Street of just over 2 km will take 15 minutes. Maps to reach the start are available at Jack Pascoe Reserve. Follow the pink tapes. Please wear high visibility clothing – bright yellow or orange vests are great as you will be riding thru the town of Maryborough.
2. Saturday pm: Maps to the start following the bike path south along Majorca Road, right at Nelson Street, left at Blackmans Street, right at Trafalgar Street are available at the Jack Pascoe Reserve. Allow 15 minutes and follow the blue tapes – start times from 1.00 pm. Toilets at Jack Pascoe Reserve but not at the start.
3. Lunch: the Recreation Centre (old YMCA) is open from 9 to 12 noon with coffee and tea and light snacks. We encourage you to visit the historic town of Maryborough for a coffee between events for something more substantial.
4. Dinner: the Maryborough Golf Club – north of the city centre on C277 – is hosting the dinner from 7.00 pm (not 6 pm as previously listed). The awards for Sprint and Middle Distance will be presented about 8.15 pm with head cam video, pictures of riders in today’s events on the big screen plus Joyce’s map game - an event not to be missed!
 
Look forward to a wintry day in Maryborough – dress appropriately.
