We spent yesterday looking at the SA state road race championship course down near Victor Harbour. The course starts at Parawa and is an undulating downhill run to Victor Harbour. Once at Victor Harbour the course makes a gentle U turn back along Iman Valley Road and then is a slow steady drag all the way to Torrens Vale Road with about 8 km to go. The turn off onto Torrens Vale Road is sharp and potentially dangerous given where it is. You approach it off a fast descent and only get visibility of it when you’re right on top of it. It’s currently covered in gravel which will hopefully be swept up before Sunday:
The climb up to the finish line is the biggest climb on the course and will favour the pure climbers in the peleton – this is not a sprinters course!
