Club Hill Climb Competition / Sat 15th Oct

Big turnout and quality field this morning at the Club Hill Climb.

Steve Allen was crowned HC champion and retains the Walter Cobb trophy. Steve went faster than last year with an impressive 3:35, he was also the quickest Vet. In second place Elliot Sharrad-Jones and Oliver Jedrej posted the same time, only 9 seconds adrift with 3:44. The Women competition was won by Jacintha Hamilton-Love who edged Olivia Campbell for the title with 4:45. She also posted a new event record on that course (even Strava says so). Luke Levett was fastest Youth with 4:53, while in the Juvenile Category (under 16) Marcus Langford clocked 5:58. Fred Bedson (VCL), only 13 years old, smashed it with 5:51 despite stopping his effort before the finish line. We might need to bring our inflatable Vittel finish banner for next year.

In one of the most highly contested category this year, the Super Vet (pipe and slippers), Captain Cod took the win ahead of Roger Crouch with a sprightly 5:06, well done Charlie!

Some really good times posted with 7 riders going under 4 mins. Anyone who has been up that hill would know, that is fast, it’s an average speed is 22km/h!

Well done to everyone brave enough to sprint up that hill today!
