Welland Valley Cycling Club

Louis kicks off hill-climb season with a cracker

In his first ever open hill climb - the Glossop Kinder Velo 3.2 mile climb to the top of Snake Pass Welland Valley CC Junior rider Louis Killworth showed great potential by winning the junior race and fourth overall with a cracking time of 13 minutes 48 seconds, only four seconds behind the winner Louis Szymanski.

The lung bursting effort was also enjoyed by his father Adrian who crossed the finish line in a pleasing 18:06.

The Snake Pass is well known to cyclists – 3.2 mile ascent with over 1,000 ft of climbing. The gradient is between 6-8% levelling off over the last ¼ mile as the competitors save some energy for the lunge for the finish line.

Louis is entered into more hill climb events, a traditional series of time-trials held during autumn.  

Phew a steadier weekend ahead

I'm sure there is plenty of racing going on but this bank holiday weekend could be a great opportunity to enjoy social cycling or watching.

Sky Ride Leicester returns on Sundaya nd the National 10 Mile TT takes place on the Wolvey Bush (Near Magna Park) also on Sunday.

The Vuelta a España hots up this weekend.

Good luck if are racing and enjoy the long weekend, be safe.
