Zwift November Hammerfest
December 18, 2016 - December 23, 2016
Why race in the snow when you can race inside!? This six day, three stage Hammerfest will mix it up with some short, something steep, and something long. Stage 1 will be a super hard, super fast sprint in the ocean tunnel. Stage 2 pitches up fierce as you attack the Watopia mountain goat KOM and decend the other side. Stage 3 will leave you breathless after two complete London loops for all the marbles. Complete the segments identified for each stage in the time allotted and upload a result to Strava.

Stage 1 - Watopia Ocean Sprint - Dec 18 & 19 (48 hours)
Take off from the banner going forward, and hit the ocean tunnel as hard as you can. It starts when you drop down the 3% hill into the tunnel and ends when you come up 3% on the other side. Choose "Flat route" and get ready after you make the left turn onto Ocean Blvd. The segment that will count is called "Finding Nemo"
Stage 2 - Watopia Up & Down - Dec 20 & 21 (48 hours)
Two monster segments make up this stage. First you will take the Watopia EPIC KOM climb up to the banner, then down the other side. Up, and then back down. Choose "Mountain Route" to get on the right path. Do not take the left turn at the top of the EPIC KOM Banner. Go straight so you head back to the ocean. The two segment times will be added together.

Stage 3 - London Long Distance - Dec 22 & 23 (48 hours)
This Hammerfest finishes out on the streets of London. This is the longest stage in Hammerfest history. Two (2) Reverse London laps will separate the winners from the not winners. Select London Loop. Ride to the banner. Pull a U-turn, and then do two laps. It will take you up Fox Hill, down Box hill, and back to the banner. Two times around will give you 18.4 miles or 29.6km. Good luck. Pace yourself!
