Despite a month of northerly winds (which would have helped) the wind changed for one night only providing a moderate headwind. The surface had also been surface dressed recently. Excuses out the way and with a junior rider weighing under 50kg as the target (there is always one each year..) the Wheelers did battle on the hill. There are no real tactics in this event, be as light as possible, maintain as high an effort as you can and hang on until the end without throwing up.
No sub 2 minutes this year, but Shane Hyde thinks he might come out of retirement and do it next year..
It was made slightly more bearable with a pint (well a half!) at the end.
Thanks to the riders and timekeepers.
