This end-of-season South Downs 100 event is unique. Not only can you pit your wits against a challenging course spanning Hampshire and Sussex, but youll also be able to take on one of the climbs against the clock on closed roads... a real chance to give it your all, as if you were gunning for a polka dot jersey.

If a timed hill-climb wasnt enough as part of a sportive, then notching up a century adds an extra layer of attraction to the discerning endurance rider. With a whole feast of ascents to tuck in to youll have certainly earned the right to feel proud at the end of this classic event.

Heading out from Chichester, well start you out on a gradual climb, easing you into a day comprising over 5,000 feet of ascent. The road takes you north and soon enough youll be in amid the whale-backed mounds of the South Downs. Make yourself at home the national park and its numerous ups and downs will be your host for the whole day. Be prepared for one particularly rapid descent just after Duncton indeed, as well as testing your ability to climb, the route is peppered with technical drops, testing both your handling and your nerve.
