We call it HCC Speedweek – our First Stage Race!

Fresh off Canada’s first-ever grand tour win, Hamilton Cycling Club is excited to announce that the four club events from June 12 to June 16 will be treated as a stage race for 2012, called HCC Speedweek.

The stages are:

  • June 12 – Indian Trail Time Trial (14.5km)
  • June 13 – Snake Road Hill Climb 3 times (4km)
  • June 14 – Weir’s Lane Hill Climb 3 times (1.8km)
  • June 16 – Falkland Time Trial (20km or 40km)

Find more details about the courses.

Rules:

  • Open to full HCC members only
  • Riders must complete all four stages; all hill climbs are three times up the hill.
  • Just two categories: male and female
  • Winners receive a trophy and a special HCC ‘green jersey’
  • Falkland 20km or 40km TT treated equally; pick your poison
  • Equal points given for riders using aero (time trial) and Merckx (standard road bike) equipment
  • Points calculated by placement in each event. (ie. Finishers are ranked 1 to 10, say, and the overall winner has the fewest points)
