Racing 63a – October 2016. Hillclimb results and Yorkshire Hill Climbs Points Competition

Organiser Stuart Newbould has now compiled the results for our Open 2-stage Hillclimb held 1st October.  This includes times for both stages, overall times and overall positions.

See here for the results.

Also, the latest standings in the Yorkshire Hill Climbs Points Competition are now available – Points standings after Otley CC Hillclimb. Our own Andrew Bolton is in second place in the standings on 408 points.  Team B38/Underpin Racing’s Kieran Savage, the 2015 points competition winner, is leading the 2016 standings with 473 points.

The next counting hillclimb is the Huddersfield Star Wheelers event Saturday 8th October on the V9912 Jackson Bridge course starting at 11.00 a.m.

This is the 43rd running of the Granville Sydney Memorial Hill Climb.  Granville, who rode for the promoting club, won the National Hillclimb Championship a total of six times in the 60s and 70s.

As well as Andrew, Sam Ward, who finished 14th overall in our event, is riding too.

Andrew and Sam then ride the Holme Valley Wheelers event on the V997 near Holmfirth starting at 2.30 p.m.

There are then three climbs left in the series all of which Andrew has entered so let’s hope he can maintain his position in the standings and maybe come out on top when the competition ends and maybe we’ll see Sam there too!
