For those of you that are starting to get fit or have entered the Tour of Flanders, the following sportive will provide a good early season work out. Myself and Bob did the full route last year and it certainly provides a good test on a challenging course.

As always, it will be great to see a good Thornton turn out. If you would like further deatails please speak to myself or bob on Sunday.

The Classic is the hardest and longest of the three rides on the Burgess Hill Springtime Classic event. An excellent event to prepair for the cycling season ahead. The course is hard for this time of the year and should only be attempted by experienced cyclists able to ride for four or more hours over hilly terrian. With a distance of 71 miles (114km) and 1653 metres of climbing the route will test riders endurance. There are three feed stations on this ride to help riders around the course which has many hills like Pillow Mounds Hill, Kidds Hill,Groombridge Hil and the infamous Cobb Lane hilll. Riders will also have the chance to relish the many descents this testing course offers. Further details can be found on the following
