Back with another post regarding the kickoff to our Thursday KOM series! Some details enclosed below:
Meeting at the bottom of Camille Houde climb (message me if you don’t know where this is), on September 9th at 6:30am, we will be doing a practice run for the actual series. Please be on time; we may hang around for a couple minutes, but the ride is off and running no later than 6:35am. Just to be clear, this week won’t be scored, but all following weeks will be.
There are six climbs to KOM. If you are familiar with these, they are:
If not, all these climbs will be shown so do not worry if you are unfamiliar with some of these roads!
Furthermore, for future weeks reference, each of the six climbs are scored with 5pts for 1st, 4pts for 2nd, 3 pts for 3rd, … , 1 pts for 5th. There will also be three groups for the contest (Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced), so sign up for the poll below to where you think you belong. In addition, a KOM score spreadsheet will be enclosed below, which will hopefully visualize what the scoring guidelines better.
Finally, some members will usually get coffee and hangout after riding for a bit, so feel free to join for that! As always, if you have any questions, feel free to respond to this post, otherwise, let’s get climbing!
