Stuart tops great season

Stuart started fast, and got faster.

Stuart Millar (Ards CC) won tonight’s Bradshaw’s Brae hill climb in an excellent time of 3:51 – nineteen seconds faster than his time two years ago. Andrew Hedley (Ards CC) showed remarkable consistency, recording 4:02 to go with his times of 4:01 last year and 4:04 in 2019 to take second place. And Marc Allen (Ards CC) took third to make it a clean sweep for the home club.

Spot the two slightly bemused locals in the bus shelter at the finish.

Thanks to timekeepers Paul and Deirdre and to Sean for pushing off (as well as riding!). That’s the end of the club racing calendar for this year. Thanks to everyone that’s competed or helped out – it’s been a great season despite the delayed start. And don’t forget – there’s still time to enter our Tour of Strangford sportive on Sunday 12th September.
