Cy­clists can’t wait for hellish ride

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Sport -

SOUTH Perth’s Katie Joyce and Como’s An­drew Wil­liams will be among those tak­ing on hell this week­end. Hell of the North that is.

Lancelin-Hell of the North is a one-day spring clas­sic be­ing held on Sun­day and it has at­tracted a field of 400 cy­clists.

It is a Gran Fondo event, where rid­ers can par­tic­i­pate as an in­di­vid­ual, in pairs or as part of a team.

The event has two cour­ses – 95km and 140km.

This year, the race will in­clude a sanc­tioned hand­i­capped race.

The sanc­tioned race will fea- ture a co­hort of Perth’s elite rid­ers, who have taken on an am­bas­sador role for the race.

The am­bas­sadors are mem­bers of the Sat­a­lyst Gi­ant Rac­ing Team who com­pete in the Na­tional Road Se­ries.

Wil­liams, who rides with Sat­a­lyst Gi­ant, will be tack­ling the race for the first time.

“The course is pretty un­com­pro­mis­ing but am look­ing for­ward to a good hit-out and hope­fully get­ting on the win­ner’s podium,” he said.

On­line reg­is­tra­tions close to­day.

Katie Joyce.
