The 2014 season of the awesome Bangalore Bicycle Championships is going with a Nandi Epic 100km Road Race on NH-7 Bangalore - Hydrabad Highway.

Get your race face on people and get ready for a rocking at the Bangalore Bicycle Championships.

PRE-RACE DETAILS
The race will start at 7am. Get to the venue at 6-6:15am. Make sure you pre-register and digitally sign your indemnity form online, so you just have to collect your bib numbers on race day. The start will be a little past the Airport toll gate and finish will be a Nandi Hill Gate.

Start Location
Race HQ is 3 km from the airport toll gate. Take a U-turn when you see the Cafe Coffee Day and HP petrol bunk on the opposite side on the highway where bib collection, pre-race briefing and staging will take place. Cars can be parked in the service lane.

Course Description : THE WAY OUT
The race rolls north on NH-7, past a couple intersections that will be marshaled. After 37 km of rolling terrain, some really long flyovers, exposed highway, and south-westerly crosswinds to deal with, the race "descends" 8 km, on straight and fast highway, to the U-turn point. The U-turn will be marshaled and will have a neutral feed station.

Course Description : THE WAY BACK
The first challenge of the course is the 8 km of highway climbs from the U-turn point. Once that is behind you, the race continues to go south until the marshaled right-hander that has you crossing the highway and put riders on the approach to Nandi. Here, you have to deal with a block headwind, a railway crossing, a series of low speed humps and a false-flat all the way to the base of the climb.

Course Description : THE EPIC CLIMB
Nandi Hills is a double headed climb. The total climb is 7 km at around 5%. The first 4 km is the shallower bit to a saddle point where you switch from Nandi I to Nandi II. The last 3 km to the summit of Nandi II is steeper, includes some steep switchbacks and kicks to the finish!

RIDE TIPS
  • Try and get a long ride (or two) around the 3hr+ mark in this weekend
  • It will take anywhere from 2:45 to 4:30hrs to complete this distance
  • Drink: 600ml/hr, so that’s a minimum of 2-3 bottles
  • Eat: 200-300 Calories/hr (800-1200 kJ/hr)
  • Replenish electrolytes lost in sweat through Gatorade, Enerzal or Electral
  • The human body can, in theory, go forever, so everyone can finish this distance, provided you fuel it right
  • A banana and a bottle of water is NOT going to cut it!
