2007 Semer Hill Climb

Our recent open hill climb at Semer, was held in almost perfect conditions, with Geoff reporting 26 entries which was 4 up from last years event.

What always surprises me, are the number of supporters it attracts, especially around the finish line, which adds to the marvellous atmosphere the event always provides. Also present this year was the local Press if form of Ken Watkins and photographer, article can be found here.

C.C.S. provided 7 entrants which was also an improvement over last years paltry entry of just 2.
James Ward from Cambridge CC had won the previous 2 events and his time of 47.9secs proved to be the fastest of the day to scoop a hat-trick of wins. He was followed home by Daniel Zagni and Phil Hetzel, both from Ipswich B.C., 3secs down on the winner.

Quickest C.C.S. rider up the hill was a close fought battle between James Rush and Peter Fradley, with James just shading it with a 55.1 sec compared to Petersʼ 57.4sec ride. Rob Davies followed with a 1min02.2sec, Rob Sidgwick with a 1min15.7sec, George Hoppitt with a 1min21.5sec that was good enough to beat dad Andrewsʼ time of 1min24.8! and finally Terry Law with a 1min35.4sec riding a fixed and complaining about his gearing being all wrong. It certainly looked that way at the top. A valiant effort though. George deservedly picked up the junior prize and it was nice to see some young riders coming through at last.

A well run event by Geoff as usual, ably assisted by Brian Webber, Alan Wiseman and the canteen boys and girls at the village hall. Winner Ward, congratulated the club in what he described as his favourite, best run and most enjoyable event of the year. Make a date in your diaries for next yearʼs event, to come and play or just watch.

  2. Most people might wear t-shirts promoting reforestation projects, celebrities will promote
    their cause on TV and you. The Internet can also be a great way to obtain inspiration for decorations, pallettes, reception playlists and menus,
    and far, much more. Metal allergies- if you have a skin allergy to nickel or some other metal that
    could possibly be mixed with all the jewelry, you should think about 22 or 24 karat gold.

  3. Upright cleaners are heavy and powerful, and sometimes not as manoeuvrable as canisters.
    As can be seen from the above applications, cleaners of this type have a wide variety
    of uses. A sternum clip also assists in giving you more support.
