Only 10 riders out on the wet Mere Hollow climb this week.  Kim Little sped up the hill to take a dominant win and knock one second from his course record with a time of 4 minutes 34.  James Chant and Simon Rouse are chipping away at their times and getting close to a sub 5 minute climb, James was second on 5.02 and Simon third with 5.04.  Junior rider Will Harvey took time out of long distance training for his Land’s End-John O’Groats trip to finish in 5.44.  Results here

Mike Smith braved the elements and was present with his video camera to capture (in High Definition) the pain and suffering on the riders faces as they battled their way up the hill.  Approx 4mins of footage on the Video Page here
