Hill climb 2016 complete

This Sunday saw the second year of the re-introduced Hill climb event in Saxby. The event sees riders tackle Saxby hill and Danns Hill, both timed, with the fastest combined time deciding the winner.

Both hills are extremely tough and a serious test for an calibre of rider, with gradients in excess of 10% throughout, with a maximum incline of around 15%. Anyone who has ridden the hills will know that it is a recipe for some serious pain!

This year was well attended with 15 riders taking to the starting block. The weather was kind and everyone enjoyed it as much as is possible given the event. For all those who missed it make sure you turn up next year as its a great event and something a bit different.
