Keightley Conquers Creech!

Lewis Keightley (Primera) took his second win in the inter club hill climb series, storming up Creech hill in 2:22:4, no one can remember anyone going quicker*. Keightley, who won on Kingston in round 1 made the steep, wooded slopes of the Purbeck climb look easy, even accelerating on the most brutal part of the accent. Simon McLaughlin (BJW) is no fan of Creech, preferring the longer, Portland or Whiteway climbs. However the Jubilee man got stuck in, taking maximum points again with a gutsy ride that was three seconds too quick for the smother looking James Horton (Poole Wheelers).
CC Weymouth once again packed the field on a warm, still Autumn morning that was made for bike riding. The pleasant weather also got the fans out, with plenty of encouragement being offered as the climb ramped up. The West Dorset club look good to retain their team title going into the final round on Whiteway Hill in two weeks time. Poole Wheelers were also out in force, showing their support for club member Jon Terry who was seriously injured after being hit by a car on Thursday last week.*Poole Wheelers President, Colin Price stii talks about a 2:14 he did on a cold day back in 1971.
