The George Samuel Memorial Hove Park Crits Series 2013
2013 sees the return of George Samuel Memorial Hove Park Crits to Hove Park, East Sussex showcasing the best cycle racing talent in the South East of England. The first race in the summer long series of four events kicks off on Friday 26 April at 6.45pm.
Each evening will start with a 4th Category-only event over 30 minutes plus 5 laps, followed by a 2nd/3rd Category contest over 50 minutes plus 5 laps. This year sees a new points system which will keep riders working hard (and pundits guessing!) right up to the finish of the last race of the series.
The 1km circuit - situated at the northern end of Hove Park - is a tight affair that rewards tactical thinking, committed attacking and sorts out who can handle their bikes and who can’t! The direction of the race changes every event and it doesn’t matter which way round the race goes every rider will have to face the demanding corners and a leg-breaking drag up the finish that eventually rewards only the very strongest riders.
See you on the start line!
