The Wolverhampton Wheelers Hill Climb Champs 2021 – in conjunction with the Newport (Shropshire) Cycling Club.
This years event saw Ironbridge bathed in Autumn sunshine and over 20 brave soles from a variety of clubs taking to the start line.
Back on the traditional Bridge Road climb starting adjacent to Darcy’s restaurant this is a severe test of any rider.
The course record of 3m 7 seconds held by Stuart Dangerfield was set on a slightly shorter course as the start point has been moved back slightly since then.
The outright winner was Steven Price in the colours of Ludlow Brewery with a time of 3m 39s
Veteran Matt Morris yet again successfully defended his Wheelers Club title with a time of 4m 8s finishing equal 5th with Jack Young of OPCC.
Other Wheelers included Mark Spruce in 10th place with 4m 57 s and Aleks Stojanovic 14th in 5m 48s.
There was a good turnout by the Wheelers club run who rode out to watch, returning via Broseley and Bridgnorth.
