Puncheur SportiveEVENT DATE

Sunday 2nd March 2014

LOCATION

Ditchling, East Sussex

EVENT SUMMARY

The challenge of the PUNCHEUR Sportive is not a long list of testing climbs, neither is it mega-endurance. The challenge is to keep up a good tempo across a variety of terrains. There are long, flat stretches; draggy climbs; fast descents; and short, sharp, steeper hills to get out the saddle and punch your way over. This is a course to be attacked, knowing you don’t have to hold back due to 100 miles or more ahead of you, but can you pace it so you don’t blow up early, and, also make sure you have something in your legs to get you up Ditchling Beacon at the end?
