This was the second event in the club’s 3 Hills competition which this year consists of the climbs up the three lanes which all lead to the high point at Pym Chair.

This climb, which has the shortest and steepest of the three routes, was won by a clear margin of just over 20 seconds by Lee Baldwin, who has just finished a successful season of road races culminating in the achievement of 1st category status a few weeks ago.

Sam Clark, who is gradually coming back to form after a bad crash earlier in the year, was second, with Aaron Handley, only 16 years old and improving fast, finishing in third.
