Club Hill Climb Championship Report

Club Hill Climb SUNDAY 28th OCTOBER 2018

This was the first time the event has been organised as a ‘stand alone ‘ version on the climb at Ashurst,this being due to large numbers of club members away in Mallorca for the usual Inter Club trial.

The morning was was fine and dry with a moderate chilly wind, around 7 degrees.

The assembly of riders at the start near Lees Lane, met with the usual myriad of pre race excuses…I.e..not fit…had a cold…lack of hills etc, but the best one of the day went to Mike Lloyd who had been juggling all week with 40cms width handlebars and cleat position and a 65 mile ride the previous day!

14 riders of mixed ability and ages (14 – 71) faced the start timekeeper Dave Ritchie.
Bill Lloyd holding the finish watch had quickly ascended the climb in his car in time to greet the first rider home.

A lively crowd of family members and supporters was gathered and spectating near to Dalton Church prior to the steeper parts of the climb, James Holloway being the principal photographer, not opting to compete this year…said it was too cold!

The event over, much activity ensued in the car park of the Prince William where times we’re examined and the category awards sorted and confirmed with the timekeepers.

A prize presentation and buffet were held in the hotel,around 50 or so attended and it was good to see members with young families in attendance…

As anticipated the 2 way battle with the favourites ensued with fast rising Junior rider Conor McKinnon and club best all rounder Martin Bailey went as planned with Martin winning in a club record time of 6 mins 10 secs to Conor’s 6 mins 19 secs….both of whom must have benefited from recent training on the hills in Majorca. A number of other riders posted PB’s

I feel the event was a success and I have received positive feedback, which is encouraging and rewarding..

Thanks to everyone who helped in any way to support the event and the staff of the Prince William Hotel at the summit for their hospitality.

Times.
