PAC-Tri win the first hill climb TT

On Saturday 6th December we joined our fiends at CDRC (Clevedon and District Road Club) for a hill climb time trial, the first of hopefully many. CDRC kindly organised the TT with both clubs competing for bragging rights. The event consisted of a TT hill climb up Shipham Hill and moved on to a freewheel competition. James Redman of PAC-Tri won the TT in an impressive time of 5m 38s. CDRC took 1st and 3rd place in the freewheel competition, looking forward to a rematch and more events with CDRC.
