Sorry, I haven't ridden it before but I guess:

1. it will be warmer
2. my route in RWGPS shows 21,000m of climbing so compare that with whatever LEL has.

It will be warmer.  I was lucky to do it in a relatively cool year (2010) where the temperature never got about 35C.  I deliberately trained in hot weather in the UK (June 2010 offered a few 30C days) and I was able to manage, although the day through Tuscany when it was at its hottest was on my limit.  It is hillier than LEL and the hills tend to be much longer - though not truly alpine there are several ascents of 5 - 10km at 6%+ and 2 or 3 very long gradually drags of 20km+.  Because the Po valley section (400km) has virtually no climbing at all - the stages that are hilly are properly hilly.

The good news is that with the average speed you do have the opportunity to take those stages steadily and recover.

I go a little less well in the heat now that I have done, which is why I am not tempted this year.  I was just about OK with 32C on PBP this year, but if I had five days like that I would struggle.

I’m undecided about aero bars for this event due to the hills, but then there is the last flat 400km. Any advice from anyone that has done it before?

I will go with Aerobars for sure, given the amount of climbing my hands will be quite sore so to be able to have a position with no pressure on the wrists is key for me. Still haven't decided on the bike, the comfy 15kg machine or a speedier thing :-).

If you can ride aerobars, why wouldn't you? I've never taken mine off and I've ridden some pretty hilly stuff (Transpyrenees and Mille du Sud spring to mind).
Weight is almost irrelevant (unless you're racing Pog up mountains) but comfort certainly is.

Is it normal for Italian events to want this much stuff? Can't say I'm super enthusiastic about sending copies of passports / ID docs around the internet for a bike ride.

I assume they are asking for a number for a ride you are stating that you completed in order to prove you are capable of the event. You can find these numbers on your AUK results page under ACP reference. I guess it's related to this.

I don't remember it saying you need to prove qualifying events but hey ho I've sent them my AUK membership number and an expired medical certificate so I'll let them deal with that while I find something better to send them. :D

We booked flights and I had the route so if they get fussy about all this stuff I'll just ride it as a DIY (assuming I survive the S-L-S 1200k in June).

"Brimstone, Poole UK, [ACP reference No]" will satisfy them.

Thanks mate. Lucky I did a 600k then I guess, otherwise I'd be firing up my random number generator...

I don;t remember them checking stufff much when I rode it in 2010.  They had regulations that said no tri-bars and let people with tri-bars start.

The requirement for a medical certificate or a racing licence to enter Mille Miglia came after 2010.

Any other UK based riders for this event that would find a WhatsApp,or similar, group helpful? I’m happy to try and set one up if there is demand…

I don't use WhatsApp so that's of little use to me, so personally, I'd prefer to keep the useful chat in here. Obviously when you're on the ground in Italy though WhatsApp might be more useful.

Don't know if this is of any use but I like to sometimes graph the climbing of events to know where I might need to conserve/use energy

They are running it counter-clockwise - which means a bit more attention to keeping to time in the first half.  And a lot of very hot flat roads in the Po valley at the end.

looks like you might be able to conserve some energy in the first 100km, and the last 400km (if you have any left) ;D

Yeah, this is what I'm working off: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/44849757

Hopefully it's fairly accurate. I don't remember where I found it nor if they will release updated route files closer to the event.

If only I was a long-distance TT specialist with a fast finish... oh wait! :D

Hmm. glad i opened this thread... entered this a few months ago. Thought i'd not heard much from them, just found a load of emails in spam box after reading this! So i need a medical certificate and insurance? ok... Assume AUK is not a UCI recognised group as looks like that would cover the insurance?

Longest ride since PBP is a pan flat 200km at about 12 degrees. That route looks quite difficult :-D better get arse in gear... or some more gears on bike.

Yep. 18,500m of climbing in the first 1000km is fairly hefty. I'll definitely be running my 11-42T cassette or 46/30 cranks (or, like at Pendle, both!).

Submitted all my paperwork now so I guess I just wait and see. Will do a cheat sheet for it at some point but I've got some other big rides to deal with first.

I've also submitted my paperwork now. Is this event BRM timed or is it just one speed the whole way? With all that climbing in the beginning its going to be hard to build up much buffer.
