Josh Day rounded off the GDW road season with the fastest time at the Mere hillclimb, winning with 4.36. Kim Little had a bit of an off-night with 4.47 while James Chant and Simon Barfoot tied on 5.05. NIgel Brown was next up with 5.17, tying with junior rider Rowan Birch who used his new Giant to good effect knocking around 20 seconds from his previous pb. 12 year old Kate Barfoot had her first go at a competitive cycling event, finishing with 11.02, a great effort on a mountain bike which weighed the same as everyone else’s machines put together.

Big thanks go to Jerome for all his work at the hilllclimbs again, plus all the regular helpers who turn out every week so we can ride – Mary, Dennis, Roger, Vic, Jerry, and Mike Donovan for doing signs – thank you!
Hopefully we’ll have some positive news on the mountain bike races soon, with luck we’ll be starting with a night race on September 29th.
