Great turn out for Bradshaw’s Brae Hill Climb

admin   September 9, 2014   Comments Off on Great turn out for Bradshaw’s Brae Hill Climb

Perhaps inspired by Nicholas Roche’s exploits in the Tour of Britain today, there was a great turnout of 16 riders for tonight’s club hill climb on Bradshaw’s Brae.

Fastest was former Irish hill climb champion Mark Kane, who stormed up the hill in 3:55 – a time that would have given him a podium in the Tour of North when the course was used for a stage in the 1990’s. Second was mountain biker Johnny Reid, with Ards CC’s Gareth Murray just one second further back.

Historic moment – Mark Kane wins the Irish hill climb championship in 1991. Ards CC promoted the race on Carrowreagh Road.
