There were rumors that the N7 was no longer an option after this years 99er? Were they unfounded?

They were more or less spot on

That is why I said "more or less"

 

Few 100 meters in 2019 vs a few kilometers in 2018

so they've cut out the drag and the fast decent before turning left towards Vissershok?? That's great as I hate that drag but that sucks as I love that long downhill, That's where I dropped our bunch last year..

Skubarra, Nov 27 2018 02:23

I like the new finish lower down Odendaal - having us finish on top of Odendaal in previous years after Vissershok was an excercise in sadism from the organisers!

now next steps Rouxnator

 

1) apply your clearly exceptional google map skills to last years route on the N7

 

2) spot the difference

 

And voila - comprehension might just overcome you - (holding thumbs...)

Rouxenator, Nov 27 2018 02:57

Well, I suppose if by few in the term "Few 100 meters" you meant 26.1 = few. Then yes, you are spot on, it is 26.1 x 100 meters.  :whistling:

Relative to 150 - yes then its a only few. But point is the N7 part of the route changed significantly

 

Apologies Rouxenator, I clearly overestimated your comprehension ability, next time I will spell it out for you using short easy words and draw some pictures  :thumbup:

Rouxenator, Nov 27 2018 03:41

I like pictures.  :clap:

Am I reading it right, are we going over that terible pothole road again ?  if so might bring MTB

That sucks! how far down the hill does it finish?

Skubarra, Feb 04 2019 12:26

There is a park about a 1/4 into the climb, I assume the finish will be there now

All thanks to the bold racers that decided that it is there right to cross the white line

I would never purposefully wish for a hill like that at the end - but we probably still have to ride up to get to the car. Its going to be quite a different race without that last bit of suffering when you are dead from vissershok. Where are the school kids going to cheer from ;)

babse, Feb 04 2019 01:52

but why shorten? 

 

this finish made this race 

Skubarra, Feb 04 2019 03:11

Oh they were cheering?? To me it always felt more like mocking the sufferers....

 

I certainly won't miss that climb!

What you don't seem to understand is that they are elite riders and are therefore entitled to the entire road.

I'v heard from locals that the local residents were complaining about access to their homes.

i love/hate that hill.  i had some motivation last year with 3 lovely ladies a few metres in front of me.  without them, i might have stalled.
