Eric worked his magic once again for the second hillclimb in the club series. His posse of all women marshals may be attributed to his charm and good looks but his ability to conjure up good weather week in week out during a dire summer can only be attributed to witch craft.
There was a good cross section of the club represented with ladies and juniors tackling the hill. It was the visitors however who did the damage with Shane Farren upholding club honours by taking 3rd place approx 30 seconds down on another blistering attack on Ballyregan Road by Mark Kane (Northern C.C.)
Nicky Frew was the fastest woman on the ascent with Ben McDowell taking the quickest junior time. Excellent times set by both in a difficult discipline.
Next club event will be the two up time trial on 18th August. This should be hotly contested by the sailors as both Garth Beattie and Johnny Webb have been getting some excellent practice in during the season at riding close behind other riders during time trials.
