All riders will marshal at the marshalling areas 750 metres west along Gulp Rd from the Event Centre. They will then ride in their allocated waves along fire road before turning right at the Event Centre into the Single Track, where the first lap will begin.
The Race Course
The Willo course follows the “Red Trail” at Wingello. Categories for the Willo use the 25km loop and this is followed once, twice or three times, depending on the length of course chosen. (25, 50 or 75KM category). Riders pass through the Event Centre and by the “Feed Zone” at the end of each 25KM lap
The 13KM loop follows half the 25KM loop.
All categories start at the Event Centre.
13KM riders start at the Finish Arch. They complete a “Start Lap” and then return the through Event Centre, before joining the single track, and completing another lap back to the Finish Arch
All other categories, (25, 50 & 75KM) start just beyond the marshal area. Riders do one short lap on fire road, ride back through Event Centre then proceed onto the single track to complete one two or three 25KM laps.
All riders finish through the Finish Arch. All laps are completed clockwise direction
Description of Track
The “red trail” at Wingello is graded as “intermediate”. Most of the tracks are able to be ridden by all levels of rider. There are a some tight corners downhill and uphill around the Nyes Creek Section, and a few steep climbs throughout the course, but none of these are described as technically challenging. There are several dropoffs where the track descends over rocks, but in these cases, A & B lines are clearly marked.
