SCC / Merseyside Wheelers Inter Club Hill Climb Report 2017

By Colin Baldwin

18 hardy souls from the club traversed the gradient today, with some really encouraging times, the event is held under CTT rules,so motors, drugs and cheating are forbidden!

Once again the McKinnon family were well represented with Dad Andy, Issy and Conor who all improved on last year’s times with Conor recording an impressive 6-37 to place second only to the winner Elliot Gough in 6-35, who has begun the Autumn with cyclo-cross already in full flow in the mud, congratulations to him.👍🏼

Have to mention Martin Bailey who was unlucky to shed his chain just as he was putting the power down, he finished with a creditable 6-44, the mechanical probably cost him the victory.👎.

At the other end of the field was our club stalwart Alan Stark who at 70yrs of age is still turning a nifty pedal and recorded 11-10, not quite the Lantern Rouge.

New lady club rider Carole James a seasoned triathlon athlete stopped the clock at 10-50. The weather was mild with only very light wind and the road in parts has been re-surfaced which made for favourable conditions.

Big thanks to Merseyside Wheelers (my old club in the 1970’s) John Clarke and our own Bill Lloyd for timekeeping.

A well supported local event with lots of encouragement from non-racing members..thanks to all…see you next year.

El Prez 👍🏼

SCC / Merseyside Wheelers Inter Club Hill Climb Report 2016

By Ian Bailey – Edited by Mike Lloyd

On the Sunday 2nd October the Merseyside Wheelers / Southport Cycling Club Inter Club Hill Climb took place once again on the 1.7 mile Ashurst Beacon course. Those involved were greeted with near perfect conditions with a dry, sunny and windless autumn day.

Riders were able to sign on from 11am and the first rider was off at 11.36am. On the day 34 riders challenged themselves to try to be the fastest up from the start at Lees Lane to the Prince William Pub. Not the steepest hill climbing course at an average of 4.6% gradient but longer than many hills local to Lancashire and nearest to Southport Ashurst Beacon provides an excellent backdrop and safe riding conditions for the trial.

Timekeepers Southport’s Bill Lloyd and Stuart Dale from Prescot Eagles CC voluntarily oversaw the event together with course marshals from both Merseyside Wheelers and Southport Cycling Club. Eleven clubs were represented on the day with Southport fielding 12 competitors including a great number of junior and youth riders.

Thomas Hanlon from Harry Middleton CC took first place with a time of 6’03”40” second fastest was Daniel Gibson of Inspire VC UK in 6’25”10” closely followed by Joe Hanlon again from HMCC in 6’26”30”. Neil Wright was once again the fastest rider from Southport CC with a time of 6’40”, winning the SCC Hill Climb Trophy for the second year on the run. Fastest woman was Helen Aldred from Liverpool Phoenix CC in 7’28”40” heading up the five lady finishers on the day including a fantastic effort by Isabelle Mackinnon from Southport CC who posted the fastest Junior girl’s time of 9’35”50”. Fastest junior was Liam Keefe also from Southport CC with a time of 7’45”00’.

Well done to all the riders, marshals and well wishers who came to watch and enjoy this great traditional yearly event, chapeau!
