You can now download rider times for this weekend’s Triathlon Show sportives using the link below, both Saturday and Sunday times are contained in the same pdf -
The boys are back from putting out the course so we have posted up the GPX files, please see below.
So, the info for this weekend:-
PLEASE BRING YOUR HELMET TO REGISTRATION. You will not be able to register without it and you’ll have to go back to your car to retrieve it.
Please park in the main carpark – preferably on the lefthand side as that’s where we are.
To the left of the main entrance will be our green Evans marquee and a a door into the building. Follow signs to registration through this door and you’ll find us there.
Toilets are in the main entrance or through a door from registration.
Entrance to the show is with a wristband. You will be given this at registration where you will be asked to tick a box to say you have recieved it. There will be no re-issues so look atfer them! If you wish to pick it up after the ride then please put a cross in the box and come back to pick it up.
The start is through the parade ground and is signed from the start. As you exit you will come out of a gate and cross the pavement. Please stop and check for pedestrians before you pull out! There are some points to note at the drink stations so please pay attention
Drink station 1 is the short ride split. The long and Medium can visit this drink station but should RIDE BACK THE WAY THEY CAME from it. If you carry on you will ride the short route
At the second drink station the Long ride splits off to do a loop. You will come back to the same drink station, do not ride this loop again but then follow medium route.
The roads are in winter conditions. I saw the odd pothole today but nothing particularly bad. I’d make sure you have a way to repair at least two punctures with you. We will come to your aid but it might take us a while depending upon where the vans are, much better to be prepared.
Long loop is closed at 1pm as it’s 26miles in – last start time is 9.45am
Distances are approx.
Fun – 16miles
Drink stations are approximately at:-
Short, medium,long – 13miles
Medium,long – 23miles
Long - 46 miles
This is not a race!!
Please obey the highway code, stop at junctions and only ride two abreast where it is safe to do so – not on main roads or winding country lanes where cars travelling at speed will not be able to see you and stop!!!! If you cause and accident, you are responsible for the consequences and any costs.
These are for info only and are not downloadable, you will get a hard copy at registration
Everyone who has pre-entered will have received a pre-event mail that has links to the GPX files and a guide to show you have to view them interactively. If you have not received this by 7pm tonight please check you junk folder, old accounts, your partners email if they booked and make sure you check the address you booked with! These are all common causes for not getting the mail. If you still don’t have them then email me on firstname.lastname@example.org I’ll check your entry and send you a copy.
See you all there!
Just come back from the show so now know the lie of the land!!
We are on the left of the main entrance to Sandown Park Racecourse. Look for the green Evans maquee and then follow signs to registration.
It’s a bit different to other years as we are inside in the warm!!!
Toilets – these can be found inside the main entrance or through our registration.
As per usual please BRING YOUR HELMET TO REGISTRATION. You will not be able to register without it.
This will be the place to come for all your last minute details about the Tri Show Ride Its this weekend.
I’ll be posting up information on how to get to the start and what you need to bring as this is different to previous years ( I’m going there tomorrow to confirm the exact position and details)
GPX files will be sent to all pre-entered riders on Friday afternoon after we have put out the route and pre- entry has closed down.
