Evening Series – Hill Climb

A beautiful late summer evening awaited the ‘grimpeurs’ on the Hill Climb, sadly the last event of the summer season. Sixteen brave riders tackled the ‘Col de Legsheath Lane’ with two riders achieving a PB. But a big congratulations to Matthew Ferguson from Redhill CC who took Henry Latimer’s course record set back in 2016, by over a second.

A big thanks to all our timekeepers and marshalls this season and ever present pusher off Richard and of course our good friends from Oxted CC.
