The first edition of the cycling club championship (KM) will take place from Botkyrka Kyrka on Saturday May 6th, first start 10am.
It is a 27 km long course. Starting from Botkyrka kyrka, straight to Södertälje along Sankt Botvids väg and Bergaholmsvägen. Turning point at the first roundabout and back to the starting point in Botkyrka kyrka.
It is a fast course, expect averages well above 40 km/h for the fastest athletes.
It is very open in certain parts, strong winds are not that uncommon.
Registration is compulsory and can be done simply by logging in on sct.nu and registering to the event. The starting list will be published on the SCT facebook page on Friday May 5th in the evening. No registration on place.
It is a time-trial race, no drafting allowed. First start 10am, then 30'' in between each start. The ladies will be the first out on the course.
Points will be assigned for each Age Group and will contribute to the total ranking for the SCT KM series 2017 (see https://www.sct.nu/vara-tavlingar/klubbmasterskap-2017/ for more info).
The easiest way to reach the start is by bike. It is 23 km from Stockholm Central.
Alternatively, one can take the pendeltåg till Tumba station. From there, it is 6-7 km to the start.
Please remember that you cannot enter Stockholm Central with a bike and that there is a train only every 30 min on Saturdays. The train arriving 9:12 in Tumba is probably the best option. Plan your trip on sl.se otherwise.
For the very unfortunates who live at more than 20-30 km from the starting line and do not have a pendeltåg station within reach, driving to Botkyrka kyrka could be an option. There might be some (limited) parking spots if no events are taking place in the church.
Bring your best legs and your fastest bike and see you at the race.
