The Jack Clements Memorial Little Mountain Time Trial Course

Course Description - K22/39

Philip Graves (Clifton C.C. York)
Men's Winner 2016

Start on C class road outside Shelsley Walsh head North West towards Stanford Bridge. At the junction with The B4203 turn left, the road gradually rising for the next mile to the foot of the first major climb, Stanford Bank.

Sapey crossroads marks the top of Stanford Bank and is followed by another almost flat section of the course. The road does, however, drop in and out of a couple of fairly steep sided small valleys before a steady drag to the left fork onto Bromyard Downs. The unfenced road across the Downs gently descends for over a mile before decanting riders onto the A44 and the flying descent through the bends of Bringsty Common. At the foot of the descent the road briefly levels alongside the River Teme before a sharp left turn over the river to Knightwick and the foot of Ankerdine Hill.

From the top of Ankerdine you can enjoy a long, fast and non-technical descent to Martley, where right onto the B4204. The next 6 miles to Hallow are probably the flattest miles of the event though with enough twists and turns to maintain concentration and interest. On the 7.5 miles along the A443 through Holt Heath and Great Witley, pure testers will come into their element with long drags and gently rolling roads - this is a good single-carriageway A road for both cars and bikes alike.

Turning left after Great Witley onto the B4203 you'll find the third real hill of the event, though this may not be as severe Stanford Bank or Ankerdine at 32 miles into the event it may have an effect on tired legs. Over the top and you're immediately on a very long, very fast descent to the River Teme where bike-handling and nerves will come to the fore. You have now returned to Stanford Bridge, after crossing the River take the first left onto the C class road to retrace to Shelsley Walsh.

At Shelsley Walsh turn off the public highway entering onto private road to immediately start the last climb of the day. The final climb is approximately 1 Km with a maximum gradient of 1 in 7.
