The first hillclimb of the year took place yesterday, with most riders finding it a big shock to the system. Despite good weather conditions, times were a little slower than normal. Josh Day was quickest, the only person under five minutes with 4.57. 2011 champion Kim Little was second with 5.01 and James Chant was third with 5.13.
It was the biggest turn out of riders that the club has had, with 19 entrants, and it was really good to see so many juniors (eight) taking part. Behind Josh, second placed junior was Yeovil CC rider Kurtis Rowe and Barney Cox was third.
