    Being in Wales all courses are sporting courses. Road engineers didn't have testers in mind when building roads on the sides of valleys.

    it's still not flat. There's an evil hill on that course. The fact that we ride down it for about a mile is immiterial :D I'm overlooking the fact that the finish is a few hundred feet lower than the start lol.

    A word to the wise don't do the 100's though for God's sake. They're evil.

    R10/17 is fairly flat (relatively) but would probably be called sporting in some parts of the country!

    I'd go along with that, they are far better than ploughing along boring DC drag strips.
