Dragons Beware: St George's Sportive Celebrates Tenth Anniversary in 2016

Southern Sportive's patriotic St George's Sportive celebrates its tenth outing this year. 

Taking place on the nearest Sunday to St George's Day (April 24th in 2016), the event sets off from Princes Risborough in the heart of the Chiltern Hills - a quintessentially English setting for a ride celebrating the nation's patron saint. 

Like St George himself, it's an event with some history (in UK sportive terms at least.) 

First run in 2007, it was one of the first couple of dozen regular sportives in the UK, and the first full sportive to take place in the Chilterns. Ten years on it's proving as popular as ever, having regularly sold-out its 800 rider capacity year on year. 

A big part of the event's success is down to the course, which is as stunning as it is challenging. 



Checking out the stats on the Southern Sportive website, you could be forgiven for thinking the ride isn't too tough; but aptly enough - given the time of year - the St George's Sportive has all the hallmarks of a Spring Classic. 

The profile traces a ragged saw-tooth pattern as the sharp climbs just keep on coming. Likewise, the twisting and technical country lane descents will keep you on the ball throughout the day.  

But all the effort is worth it. It's a stunning part of the country, and the beautiful surroundings will help take your mind off the physical challenges. The Chilterns in spring are a great place to be out on a bike, and the St George's Sportive will certainly leave you wanting to come back for more.

But as knight defeat in the second half, even his / her one-on-one hit his details. In this series, OuWenBen must have certain advantages in counterpoint, such as the finals last year, as the season of Christmas competitions, with their strong private fortunes turned.

But today the warriors from the changes, let knights staggered, also let like one-on-one hit Owen [url=]curry shoes[/url] to get the rhythm. Actually, today most likely was clay - Thompson Lord Owen, although Owen hit a dead facing him, but clay height reach or to some extent, limits the Owen's invasion. In only a few times facing single singled out in his Arsenal, although Owen offers good performance, but also it's hard to return for a knight.

Entire play, scored 28 points 6 rebounds and 10 assists within the Treasury, 6 of 11 three-point [url=]kd shoes[/url] shots. 24 points and 3 rebounds, 3 assists, Owen has scored 17 points within the first half, he scored seven points from the second half. Facing the big four of the mighty, and only Erina Owen in one-on-one acquire garage have chances, but today's garage to complete better.
