Well what a day!
The most beautiful morning for the Scottish Hill Climb Champs in Stow and we took up our place on the hill to shout and encourage the riders as they went past. We were obviously biased towards our own Gary Robson who went off 32nd and Toby Dawson who went off 27th and, aged 11, was the youngest competitor by about 5 years!
Friend of the shop and sponsored Boardman Elite rider, Grant Ferguson, showed the field a clean pair of heels and won in a time just outside the Hill record – clearly his Boardman Elite 9.8 giving him the competitive advantage. Check out www.veloveritas.co.uk for full report.
After the ceremonies we took one of our favourite routes and spent a fabulous hour riding over the Lauder Common over to Lauder, then returned past the golf course to Wooplaw and back to Stow for coffee and panini’s in the Cloud Cafe.
