About the Event

Info for Riders

The challenge of the PUNCHEUR Sportive is not a long list of testing climbs, neither is it mega-endurance. The challenge is to keep up a good tempo across a variety of terrains. Don't take it lightly, however - your endurance level will be tested for sure, and you will get a good idea of your early-season fitness, and where your strengths and weaknesses are. There are long, flat stretches; draggy climbs; fast descents; and short, sharp, steeper hills to get out the saddle and punch your way over. This is a course to start positively, knowing you don’t have to hold back due to 100 miles or more ahead of you, but can you pace it so you don’t blow up early, AND, also make sure you have something in your legs to get you up Ditchling Beacon at the end? If this butters your muffin, sign on.
