Thanet RC Hillclimb – 11/10/20

The club’s annual hillclimb at St Margarets was held on a fine and sunny autumn morning. The main thing absent was a large field of riders. The event clashed with a number of other events such as a round of the East Kent CycloX, the KM big ride, and the CTT circuit championships, which probably kept the numbers down.

However, we did have enough riders to fill the podium. First place went to Paul Burrows with a time of 2m 39.4s. Sophie Driscoll flew the flag for the women, coming second in a time of 3m 16.4s. In third place, and retaining his wooden spoon was Nigel Derrett who "flew" up the hill in 6m 09.6s!

The helpers outnumbered the riders on this occasion, and thanks go to Colin Inett, Pete Huckstep, Simon Henderson, Michael Friend and Dave Mastin.
