Medio route:

The Medio route is the middle distance route options of the Dartmoor Classic Sportive. The route starts with a 2.3 mile neutralised segment from Newton Abbot racecourse to Clay Pits Way. Here you will see the 'Timing Towers' and your official ride time will begin. Nine miles on from the Timing Towers you will enter a closed-road segment, known as the Pirelli Hill Climb Challenge. Here you will have the opportunity to test your climbing strength against your fellow Medio participants with prizes to be won for the fastest male & female riders. There is one central feed staion on this course which you will pass through after 34 miles. A 'split time' will be recorded for you as you pass through the refreshment stop. The Medio route returns along Clay Pits Way. After completing 65.5 miles of the course you will once again see the Timing Towers where your official ride time will stop. You will then have the opportunity to properly warm down as you follow the remaining 2.6 miles of the route back the Newton Abbot racecourse where you will receive your medal and goodies. The Medio route includes Gold, Silver & Bronze medal standards for both age and gender categories, these are shown in the tables below. To participate in the Medio route you must be able to maintain an average pace of no less than 9 miles per hour (including any stop time). There is a cut-off point at the start of the Pirelli Hill Climb. If you do not reach this point before 10:15 hrs you will be diverted onto the shorter Piccolo route.
