There was another good turnout of 19 riders for the second round of the GDW Hillclimb Series.  They had to battle against a strond headwind up the climb, which obviously slowed everyone done quite a bit.  Junior rider Josh Day raced up to take his first outright win setting a time of 5.07.  He was seven seconds ahead of VC Walcot’s Barry Holley who was riding a fixed-gear machine.  Third went to Simon Barfoot, just one second ahead of James Chant while Tom Brown beat his dad Nigel by five seconds.  Results here
