Hi Glen,

Just to be clear it is a MRORCA race so this info will have to be confirmed by them.

ABC men and A women will be 10am start in the first wave and then all others in the second wave will be 11.45.

Im sure this will be confirmed on the entry page in the next day or so.

Hi. Can anyone suggest a grade to go in? I tend to come in the first third of things on strava. B or C? Or does it even matter?

Hi, As the kids are entering on the day what are the start times for the U9 and U13?

Hi Graham,

The latest information I have seen shows the "Under 9's" and "Under 13's" starting at 9.00 am. I would suggest you need to be there at around 8.00 - 8.30 am to register.

The Junior course is noted as being separate to the Seniors and has been suggested it remain open all day for the Juniors to be able to continue riding.

Hi Lozzatron,

See you did the Dwellingup Super 60 in 4 hours 3 minutes. (nice ride) Using that as a guide and my own time for the Super 60 of 3 hours 51 minutes so fairly close. I ride in "Male D" category and the last few races have finished around position 21 out of 30 to 35 riders. Based on that I would suggest you start in "Male D" category. It's not critical which category you race but the Male A, B and C categories race in the morning and if you aren't riding at their pace they'll be lapping you. Male D and E ride in the second wave so I think you will find that more enjoyable.

So I'd suggest "Male D"...

Thanks! and thanks for the input JohnH.
