When I did this race last year (and nearly won it) we stood for the entire climb every lap. Keep in mind that in the race you hit the base of it at 25mph or so (I guess maybe a bit slower for 5's), so you can practically coast up to that little right hand corner. From there it's just stand and pound it. Sit down over the top, DO NOT LET A GAP OPEN, tuck in down the tiny downhill, then hang on for the next little climb. Take a good line in the tight right-hander at the bottom of the hill so you don't have to accelerate out of it. Keeping that corner smooth will make all the difference - if you're smooth you save a massive amount of energy every lap, and can rest for far longer.

Fun race, way better than the first two days.
