A cool but sunny evening saw the Grinnies gather for the end of season Hill Climb. Down in numbers on recent years, only 7 riders gathered, but all managed to get inside the 7 minute barrier on the mile and a half course, which given the average age of the riding group was a commendable effort.
Paul Blackmore retained his hill climb club champion title from last year, this despite being stopped in his tracks on the course by a combination of horses and considerate driving. Andy Selzter fresh from his holiday grabbed second spot with Mike Anton completing the podium. Ted, Steve, Ben and Paul completed the scramble for minor placings, all separated by only 15 seconds.
That completes the evening series for another year. Don’t forget the next major club event, the EGCC organised ESCA 25 on Sunday 16th Sept. Please ride or help.
