Big day for Chris this coming Sunday with the National Hill Climb Championship on Bank Road in Matlock, Derbyshire. Chris is off number 95 in a field of 240 riders, his start time being 12.47.30pm. Judging from the picture below (taken at a recent climb by Ellen Isherwood) which Chris has titled 'Empty your mind.........then empty your legs', he's in good form and we all wish him a trouble free ride.
Also racing on Sunday is Grimpy, in his 1st Cyclo X of the winter season at Thorns Park, Wakefield. This is the start of his build up to the World Championships in Moll, Belgium in December (which is unfortunate for John as, if the Worlds had been, as usual, in January he would have stepped up an age category). Best wishes go to John who's been suffering with his breathing on todays vets run following a fall whilst out mountain biking yesterday.
Simon and I are riding the Peculiar Old 200k Audax this coming Saturday (entries still open on the AUK website) so I'm relying on someone else to arrange a Sunday Club Run.
