Ricky takes final club race

Ricky Topping won tonight’s Bradshaw’s Brae hill climb, but a niggling cross/head wind meant that the course record was never in danger. His time of 4:17 was well clear of a close battle for second, with Geoff Brennan (4:36) just beating Andrew Jess (4:38) and Luke Joyce (Kinning, 4:43). They were followed by Barry Greer (Kinning, 5:09), Brian Wylie (Castlereagh, 5:28) and Colin Wilson (6:00).

Thanks as always to the time keepers and marshals, who have done sterling work all season. It’s time to take a well earned rest and recharge the batteries. Our Tour of Strangford Sportive is on this Sunday, and then there will be Saturday and Sunday club runs throughout the winter – check our Facebook page for details. And don’t forget about the fun 10 mile TT on Christmas morning!
