Well done to the 48 intrepid riders who took on the Old Polhill Hill Climb this morning in pretty damp conditions.
Obviously everyone is a winner for just taking part, but here are the results…*drum roll*
First place: Helen Proudlove 3:48
Second place: Juliet Tate 3:52
Third place: Rachel Lynn 3:54
First place: Ben Millard 2:28
Second place: Joe Thomas 2:34
Third place: James Marshall 2:49
Well done to Helen, pipping Juliet and Rachel by only a couple of seconds. Shout out to Ben for dismantling his entire bike to shave off valuable grams (including bottles, mudguards, and bottle cages!) – turns out weight does matter.

Special thanks to all my fellow volunteers (Niki, Tash, Alison, Scott) for sweeping, timekeeping, and cowbelling!
