Velo Club Baracchi riders enjoyed two hill events, a freewheeling competition for the downhill experts and a conventional hill climb.

It was Keith Wink who took the VCB freewheeling trophy win on Jays Hill in Sotterley, when he set off from a standing start and had the best VCB result by travelling the furthest at the bottom of the hill.

Sam Baxter of Rock Estate was the best of that club’s contingent and finished half a wheel further on, but the trophy in that event was solely for VCB members.

Most of the riders then rode on to Station Road at Alburgh, where Dove Hill presents a short but steep challenge.

The climb for the Bernard Dale Memorial Trophy was hotly contested and VCB’s outstanding junior rider Lucas He saw off all opposition to win. Leading times: Lucas He (VCB) 39.75, Paul Hayward (VCB) 49.83, Sam Baxter (RE) 50.66, Rory French (RE) 54.11, Kristian Giddins (RE) 54.75.
