The following symbols appear on the profiles and maps
Used at the start of a point to point race route .Often, the race is under control from the registration/ marshalling location
The typical chequered flag. If the start and finish are at the same location, then you'll only see this symbol. Often used for loops and circuits.
Registration/ Marshalling/ Carparking
This is where you can park your car, register (for a race) and prepare to be led to the start location.
Climb 1
The red circle depicts the top (end) of a climb. Often with climb symbols, a point just short of the heighest point of the hill has been selected. This gives a steeper (and more pertinent) grade.
Descent 2
A green circle depicts the top (start) of a descent.
Crest 3
The blue circle depicts a crest which represents the end of a climb and the start of a descent at (or very close to) the same position.
The climbs, descents and crest grades are tabulated alongside the maps.
