Climbing Dover Hill hill climb.
On Sunday, it rained all day. Not good conditions for a 2 stage hill climb.
Dover Hill 1 mile long, gradient not too steep.
Dover Hill will be used for the National hill climb Championships 2010
Matt Clinton, mikevaughan.co.uk cycles won in 4.01. 2nd was James Dobbin 4.05. Third was Robert Gough 4.13.3 I came forth with 4.13.8 ( 5 100ths of a second – is a pretty close margin)
I was freezing by the time I got to the car, thankfully, the car heating worked well and I had a spare set of clothes. 2 hours later it was the second climb up Saintbury Hill.
Saintbury hill 1.3 miles
- Matt Clinton 6.05
- James Dobbin 6.09
- Tejvan Pettinger 6.23
- Matt Higgins 6.27
Overall I came third which won me £30. Thanks to Alex Zebedee and Sollihul CC for organising and marshalling in the persistent rain.
