Kapiti CC Hill Climb Series – Race one

An introduction to the forthcoming three hill climb event series was held last night up the tough Anlaby Hill. The climb although only 1.16km long with an average 8% grade has sections up to 12%. A tough test.

Unfortunately, four riders turned up late after timing had ceased, although they completed the climb, an accurate time could not be determined. Their Strava times will hopefully appear on the KCC leader board at some stage.

Anthony Nalder took out the fastest ascent 4.23 mins, an excellent result that puts Anthony top of the KCC leader board.

 1st         Anthony Nalder               4.23

2nd         Harrison Steadman        5.13

3rd          Tristan Ratcliffe               5.24

4th          Lee Pownall                      5.40

5th          Tony Levaggi                    5.43

6th          Janice Hill                          5.51 (1st Women)

7th          Peg Leyland                      6.14 (2nd Women)

8th          Travis Medhurst              7.42
