I'll probably turn up and give it a go though I usually race C-grade at Heffron, not sure what grade I'd be out there. I'm the guy in the bright red DHBC jersey, if you see me say hello because I won't know anybody there
I've never raced there before but the strava segment is here:
It looks from previous results that C Grade in the past has done 5 laps and B Grade 6 laps.
I recommend you start with the same grade you would usually race at Heffron and see how you go. From the course profile, it looks like very different racing to Heffron. Looks like ~70 vertical metres per lap, and a fast downhill section down Saunders Rd. I've ridden some of those roads - don't expect a smooth road surface!
Look forward to seeing you out there on Saturday.
