Fergus Cracks it
There was a good turn out for the IVCA Hill Climb on Sunday, 23 September, which saw riders tackle a new event hill outside Rathcoole. In spite of a maximum gradient of 17% one third of the way up, the new course was well received by all of the riders.
Fastest on the day was Fergus Craddock (pictured) who completed the 2.2 km course in 5 mins 57 secs. Second place went to Fearghal Regan, with a time of 6 mins 6 secs, while just one second back in third place was David Vavasour on 6 mins 7 secs.
Best on Handicap time was Brian Kane, with Phil Ormrod second and Brendan Byrne third. It was great to see many of our newer members turning out for the event for the first time and establishing a handicap time for next year. The full results are below – they show how tight it was for some of the placings.
Many thanks to all of the marshals, time-keepers and our pusher-off-er.hill-climb-results-2018
