Portland Hill Climb, Hatrick for McLaughlin


Justin Oakley Reports………..Thirty five riders faced the CC Weymouth timekeeper to tackle Portland Hill in round two of the local Interclub Hill Climb Competition. CC Weymouth were very well represented, a good ploy, as all finishers get points for these events, even if it is only one.

It was Simon McLaughlin of the Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers who triumphed for the third year running to win the race with a time of 5:54, just fourteen seconds from his own course record and twenty eight seconds ahead of Greg Parker from CC Weymouth. What can the other clubs do next year to secure that top spot?
The weather was cloudy with a nice tailwind pushing the riders up the long straight part of the climb but it was against them up to the finish line where not even a single rider could manage a smile worth noting, strange that!
Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers and Poole Wheelers have a lot of work to do in the next week in mustering up more support in the run up to the next round up Creech Hill, a short sharp climb through the woods and a course that demands a different approach entirely.
