Club Hill Climb Championships
This Sunday's Hill Climb Champs (6th October 2013) saw a very depleted field take to the start line, despite a good many riders meeting at the Stadium or riding over to the event.
However, we did have a Professional rider compete as a private ride -
As expected Liam was inside the magic 3 minute 30 mark but not quite as fast as Stuart's record of 3.05, which is still highly creditable given that Liam had just returned from a two week lay off and relinquished his race diet for a while.
The competition between Wheeler's members was very close in deed with just 2 seconds covering the top three:
in third place was former Club Champion and ex 1st category road man Matt Morris.
The ride of the day was surely that of young Joe Lister who was just a solitary second
away from a remarkable win -
But the win went to Mark Primmer, who since packing smoking and taking up bike riding
has gone from strength to strength -
The Veteran's honors were fought out between In Horton the club Time Trial Secretary and Pete Escritt who ran out winner in that category.
Full results below
Lets hope that this will inspire a few more to take part in next years event.
