Here are the results from Monday's second hilly in the Inter Club series, at Old Hutton. It was a close race, with George Wharton winning out in 21:04, Duncan Orme taking 2nd just 7 seconds back in 21:11, & Craig Steele a further 3 seconds back in 21:14 for 3rd place. Our sole Lancaster CC representative on the night was Antony Wood, in a time of 25:06 for 8th place & 43 Inter Club points.

After 2 events, the Inter Club competition stands like this:
|Kent Valley||408 points|
|Lakes RC||229 points|
|Barrow CW||177 points|
|Lancaster CC||83 points|
But the next 2 events are on our 'home turf': Condor Bottoms hill climb on Monday 15th June; & Jubilee Tower hill climb on Monday 22nd June. Both are just a short ride out of Lancaster. Both these hill climbs have become popular & sociable occasions in recent years, when they've run later in the year, in September. They're a great chance to test your legs over climbs that you might have ridden many times, but rarely raced (& there's a difference!); and for friends & family to come along & roar everybody up the hill. And in June this year, they're a good opportunity to mix & mingle mid-season.
And if enough Club members take part, we should move up the Inter Club leader board!
