Perfect conditions expected in Hadleigh
On Sunday, the first formal run through of the 2012 Olympic mountain bike course takes place with the official test event in Hadleigh. The Essex town overlooks the Thames River Estuary, approximately one hour east of Central London.
Riders had an earlier opportunity to check out the circuit in May, after the Dalby World Cup in the north of England, but that was not under race conditions.
46 women and 60 men are registered for the event, including both of the defending Olympic champions - Sabine Spitz of Germany and Julien Absalon of France.
