Watford Velo Hill Climb – The results!

Well, what a climb that was!

Before we get into the results, I want to say thank you to all of you that rode up the climb yesterday, as well as a big thank you to those that helped in the mornings smooth running. Judging by the feedback so far, the decision to move our event to Whiteleaf was a good one, and everyone suffered admirably!

The results below are a little different to those that we provisionally announced at the event, and the times have been re-checked by our CTT timekeepers on the day. The results below are being submitted to CTT and the riders should see them against their CTT profile shortly.
