Saturday Farrants Hill & Reserve Creek Road Race
Rolling out from the Madura Tea Estate, Saturday’s course is a tough course characterised by a number of pointed climbs on classic Tweed Valley country laneways.
Starting from the Madura Tea Estate, we head out in neutral to join up with Farrants Road and an early climb to get warmed up. Following a tight technical left-hand turn onto Eviron Road we link up with another left turn on Clothiers Creek Road and two more laps on the Farrants Hill Loop before turning towards Tweed Valley Way.
After a short section on Tweed Valley Way we pick up the pace with a Sprint through Kielvale onto Reserve Creek Road towards the major pointed climb of the day.
After a fast descent we keep left on Round Mountain Road where the peloton rides a 1600 metre gravel section with a small climb and descent before linking over the Pacific Motorway twice. The peloton will liven again on the flats as we approach the Madura Tea Estate for a Sprint before taking on the next lap.
