Cheers Chris.
I really enjoyed this in 2017
The 2018 road climb leagues are now active and ready for folk to join!
Pretty much exactly 2hrs and 30 min total time for each of us in 2017, and in the end only separated by 45s!

So the year has come to a close. Firstly, well done to everyone who took part in the inaugural hill climbing competition, and a thank you to Graeme Cook for setting this up in the first place.

As a reminder, we set out 15 road climbs for the “king of the road” competition (with these in groups of 5, making three mini-competitions) and 5 offroad climbs for the “king of the offroad” competition. We came up with a scoring system, giving 6 points for 1st place, 4 points for 2nd, 3 for 3rd, 2 for 4th, and 1 for 5th.

So there we go. Well done to the winners. Well done to everyone else! (And since myself and Graeme Cook have been battling against each other all year, well done to Graeme for beating me!). If anyone wants to see full details of time, these are on matesrace.co.uk.

We’ll be doing the same again.

All the best and happy hill-climbing for 2018!
