North Road CC Hill Climb – 2018

Cake attracts more helpers than riders but Candy proves handy on the slopes

New Road, Digswell

1 Nicholas Candy 2:28
2 Glyn Dodds 3:03
3 Anthony Taylor 3:25
4 James Cross 3:26
5 Nuala Robinson 3:27
6 Darren Harrison 3:40
7 Chris Glithero 4:19
8 Nikki Chandler 4:21 

Despite the at times very heavy rain, eight brave souls took the start where a shock win by the unheralded Nick Candy sent the bookmakers home happy.  Nick seemed pretty pleased if a little surprised.  Special mention must go to Nuala Robinson who wasn't put off by some start line mechanical gremlins and almost made the podium.

It wouldn't be a North Road Hill Climb without the post race hospitality provided by the Bonfields and this year they delivered in spades.  So a big thank you to Gill and Bill for the fantastic spread.
