The biggest entry for a Wheelers’ hillclimb so far saw 20 riders have a go at racing up the tortuous Mere Hollow.  Everyone completed the course, although some people were in better shape than others by the finish!  Paul Hopkins was the only rider to get under 5 minutes this month, a headwind over the last section adding around 20 seconds to most of the regulars’ times.  Course record holder Jerry Rayner (Somer Valley CC) was second and championship leader Simon Barfoot was third.
Jane Pritchard just won the women’s section from Sarah Roberts and Josh Day was fastest junior, just 17 seconds slower than dad Julian.
