Ladies racing back at Mallory for 2017

  • We have 3 events planned for 2017 and have had great support, with 22 riders taking out subscriptions to guarantee these races. For the first nights racing we had 27 riders on the start line, the biggest ever field for a ladies race at Mallory Park
  • If we continue to get such good support, and if there’s demand, we will look to put on a further 2 races, 18th May and 29th June looking like the most suitable dates

Events

  • We have 3 events on the programme on 13th, 20th and 27th April, for 2nd, 3rd and 4th category riders.
  • The races will be run on the track at the same time as the mens 4th category races, but the groups will be started half a lap apart.
  • Safety is a big concern for us when operating in this way, so we will have strict rules on what needs to happen should the 2 groups come together, the onus being on the caught riders to drop back.
  • Anyone who doesn’t drop back will be warned and if they continue riding in the other group will be disqualified. Its an approach that works fine on other circuits.

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-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-c-2

Full Clockwise Finish 2

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