Congratulations to Edward Wells with a impressive ride to the take the 2023 Club Hill Climb Championship.

On a bright cold morning four members took to the start line to do battle. Experienced member Kerry Lewis took off first followed by new member Edward Wells who quickly set an impressive speed on the lower slope, returning member Gareth Clement also powered away at the start on the Barn Hill course with a gradient of ten percent on the tough climb, finally returning Hill Climb Champ Dean Cummings hoping to repeat his past victory’s was the last man and quickly set off in pursuit of Gareth. As all the riders got stuck in to the tough accent Edward was setting an amazing pace and past Kerry near the top of the climb, Gareth also held a good pace on the final stage as the he sped towards the finish line. Dean was the last to finish closing on Gareth on the finishing straight as he approached the chequered flag.
