Report by Don Andrews

The club hill climb championship was held on the usual course near Preston village  on 10th October in ideal conditions with 28 riders competing. Time keepers were Nick Coe, Don Andrews and Harry Broad.

The result was very close with a handful of seconds separating the first few riders. Overall winner and 2010 champion is Doug Driscoll, particularly impressive considering that he had led a five hour mountain bike ride the day before!

Notable performances were by JJ Plumb aged 9 who looked very classy on a super small road bike and Charles Minashi aged 14 ably supported by both his dad Richard and grandad Nick. If there were a time prize there would be no contest.
Surely the first time in VCC history that three generations of the same family have competed in the same event!

The fastest lady was Karine Jones who appears once a year to record the really impressive time of 3.38  Does she spend all year just training for this one event?

A good day was rounded of by a return to Vanstone G.C. for well deserved refreshments.
