Many thanks to Dan Upton and all the other helpers who made this event possible.
Oskar Everett, an under-16 rider, of Orwell Velo, was fastest up the hill, with a time of 42.00 seconds over the 500 yard course, beating many older and more experienced riders, and setting a new juvenile record for the course. Second was last year’s winner from the same club, Chris Crabtree, with a time of 42.70 seconds, and making it a clean sweep for Orwell Velo, third was Matt Day, 45.00 seconds.
Not surprisingly, Orwell Velo also carried off the team prize, followed in second place by Colchester Rovers CC (Oscar Karta-Smith, Greg Andrews, Shane Jarvis), with the home Cycle Club Sudbury in third place (Robert Smith, James Rush, and Dean De’Ath).
Fastest lady was Nicola Soden, of Datalynx-Parenesis, 1min 04.00 seconds, with in second place Hannah O’Brien of Loose Cannon’s Conditioning, 1min 07.00 seconds, and third the home club rider, Angela Lesslie, Cycle Club Sudbury, with a time of 1min 11.00 seconds.
