112.3km Course Description

THE WAY OUT
The race rolls north on NH-7, past a couple intersections that will be marshaled. After 48.5 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.

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.

THE EPIC CLIMB
Nandi Hills is a double headed climb. The total climb is 7.34 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!

The Route : 112.3km
