Autumn Hilly 11/10/14 – Results

A drizzly start to the morning turned into plesent conditions for the 2014 Autumn Hilly, although the early mourning rain was enough to put some off riding with only 5 riders taking to the start line. Fastest of the day was John Watson who powered home to a 50:44, an impressive time given John was on his standard road bike. Nick Senechal came in second with a 52:39 and Catriona Buchanan third with 55:43 on her first time around the circuit. Leanne Cutler narrowly missed going under the hour by 20 seconds, and Nick Hickman fell victim to the flint monster as he punctured half way around lap 2, but repaired his wheel and continued on to the finish, chapeau.
