Circuits

2015 circuits

The Mallory circuit can be configured in a number of different ways to give some variety to race nights. Full details are below. Circuits for each race night are indicated in the seasons race programme
CircuitDescription
full-ac-1

Full Anti-Clockwise Finish 1

Full circuit, anti-clockwise but with the finish on the main straight just after the bridge. Makes for a classic battle between the sprinters and those riders who need to get clear before the finish line. Used occasionally for the older Youth riders (U14/16) giving them a chance to race on the full circuit including the climb to the Bus Stop chicane and Mallory's iconic Shaw's Hairpin
full-ac-4

Full Anti-Clockwise Finish 4

Run in the anti-clockwise direction and finishing just past the Bus Stop chicane (not used on this configuration)
full-ac-5

Full Anti-Clockwise Finish 5

With the finish situated just before Shaw's hairpin in the anti-clockwise direction this is a difficult one to judge with the steepest part of the climb coming around 250m from the line
full-ac-6

Full Anti-Clockwise Finish 6

This configuration runs anti-clockwise and includes the Bus Stop chicane just as the climb begins to level out. The finish is situated on the steepest part of the climb just before the Bus Stop chicane
full-c-2

Full Clockwise Finish 2

The traditional full circuit, running clockwise and finishing just before Shaw's hairpin
full-c-3

Full Clockwise Finish 3

Running clockwise but with the finish situated by the Bus Stop chicane, this is a difficult finish to judge due to the preceding climb up to Shaw's hairpin. A strongman's finish.
hilly-crit

Hilly Crit Finish 6

The Hilly Crit circuit is just that, a tough hilly, twisty course. Its a circuit you either love or hate but it always produces a worthy winner!
lower-ac-1

Lower Anti-Clockwise Finish 1

Arguably the hardest of the two flat circuit variations, when run anti-clockwise we have a 400m uphill drag from the last bend to the finish
lower-c-1

Lower Clockwise Finish 1

Using the flat lower circuit and finishing on the main straight, this circuit features a slightly downhill finish making for fast, exciting sprints
