Dust of your climbing cobwebs because as of this Thursday at 6:30 am, KOM is back!
The ride consists SIX of climbs around Mount Royal. Each individual climb has a predetermined amount of points up for grabs which will be attributed to the first five riders across the top (5 points for 1st place 4 points for 2nd place and so on). The rest of the ride is neutral and will also be separated into three distinct groups; beginner, intermediate, and advanced, each with their own respective point totals.
Without further ado, what everyone is waiting for, this year’s climbs are;
- Camilien Houde
- Côte de la Polytechnique
- Chemin de la rampe
- UdeM Music School Climb (it’s back!)
- Camilien Houde (so nice we’re doing it twice!)
The start point is at the base of Camilien Houde, and we’ll leave promptly at 6.35AM. This means that you should be present at 6.30AM. The ride should take approximately one hour, and we usually get coffee afterwards.
Here is a link of the route for this year:
Here is the 2019 (yes it says 2018) points tally. Make sure to add your name as a contestant in the appropriate table (beginner, intermediate, or advanced)!
No points will be awarded at KOM #0, we’ll use the ride to walk everyone through the route as well as clearly state where the finishes for each climb are so there’s no confusion going forward.
Sign up below if you plan on coming (and what category you’d like to race in)!
The coveted polka dot jersey is back up for grabs!
