Simon Hall wins Newnham hill climb event

Rugby Editorial 21st Sep, 2015 Updated: 27th Oct, 2016   0

PERFECT conditions met Rugby Racing and Cycling Club riders for the annual visit to the Newnham hill climb which acts as the last club event of the season.

Simon Hall was crowned in a time of 2:20.4, although this was almost 18 seconds off the club record for the event.

The entry this year was a disappointing 13 proving perhaps that time-trialling differs from hill-climbing where power to weight ratio is all important.


Simon Hall 2:30.4, Andy Craig 2:34.2, Ben Atkinson 2:44.5, Dean Mason 2:45.7, Richard Wayman 2:48.6, Jason Baggett 3:12.9, Jonathan Jordan 3:38.6, Caroline Read 3:40.2, Kate Vanloo 3:51.6, Dave Pettifor 4:38.1.

<b>Private Entries: </b>

Seb Palmer 2:32.4, Mark Jackson (Sapphire RC) 2:45.1, Neil Lemmon (Leicester Tri) 3:26.5.
