Banbury Star’s 2019 Open Time Trial sees a return to the K4/10W course on the B4100 Warwick Road that was introduced last season and will take place on Saturday 31st August with the first rider departing at 10:01.
The course is an “out and back” with only one turn made at a roundabout and starts with a fast descent of Warmington Hill where speeds approaching 50mph have been recorded. Riders maintain a northwest heading along the B4100 towards Gaydon with another descent of a 10% hill just before the army barracks at Kineton. Gentle undulations allow the rider to settle before the roundabout at Gaydon where a 180 degree turn is made to retrace the outbound leg. The race finishes at the bottom of Warmington Hill, there’s no need to ascend it at race pace!
