THE RANGE SECTOR CHALLENGES:
We love the classics that always have defining sectors. Sector Challenges can change every year.
In 2022, there is 1 gravel sector that is mainly flat, but comes late in the ride. This is for those that still have the power and a group at the finish.
1. The Range: 3.0 km. Starts KM 97
Sector challenges will be marked with ‘Start’ and ‘End’ signs.
2021 Winners were Trev Williams and Susanne McArthur.
PIONEER / PERSERVERANCE AWARD:
The Range is not an easy course. It takes a good amount of training and determination to take on The Range.
This award is given to a group or individual that digs deep to get it done.
The award is pretty awesome: The Range Wood Engraved Plaque

Every 12th finisher will get a prize when the roll over the finish line thanks to Ridley's Cycle!
