Arkesden Hill Climb Championships 3rd November 2019

There is a hill climb time trial next month not too far from Royston and looks like it could be a good event.

Here is the strava segment for the climb:

I'm planning to do this... anybody else?


It's finally arrived: the first closed road hill climb event in North West Essex...who would have believed it! After months of protracted negotiations with UDC and the UCI we have the go ahead. The monstrous Col du Long Lane is the venue, its slopes littered with the tattered dreams of many Saffron Walden cyclists.
 
Places in the event are limited so don't delay in registering at:
 
https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-arkesden-hill-climb-championship-registration-74882374197?aff=ebdssbdestsearch  
 
The road will be closed from 8.00-11.00am on Sunday 3rd November. Registration will take place in Arkesden Village Hall from 7.30am that morning.
The first rider will set-off at 8.30 with subsequent riders going off at 30 second intervals. It is a simple race of truth, man/woman vs mountain, somewhere around three minutes of unadulterated pain, suffering, anguish and torment. As the road rises to over 10% in the final 150m the cacophony of noise from the massed spectators will surely spur you on over the finishing line.
 
But once is not enough, we want you to get your money’s worth: after the time trial has been completed every competitor will then also have a head-to-head race on the same climb against another rider. We’ll draw up and handicap these races to make sure everyone has a fair chance of winning. And if you have set one of the fastest four times you’ll be racing for medals and for the title of King or Queen of the Hill.
 
Sign up, tell your cycling mates, and bring along family and friends to cheer you on. Let's make some noise! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1aTTokSKko
 
The event is open to anyone 12 years and older on the day...don't be shy!
 
A compulsory cash donation of £5 per competitor, to cover the event costs, will be collected at registration on the morning.
 
All the best

Good spot Ryan. I’ve registered. I like the idea of the handicap hill climb race too!
