Wexford County Hill Climb Champs
1st Martin Mizgajski Barrow Wheelers 2nd Richard Barry St. Finbarrs 3rd Fionn Jordan Slaney CC
Well done to our U16 rider Fionn Jordan who finished a great 3rd place overall in the Wexford Hill Climbs champs on Saturday evening. The TT was held on the closed road up the 2.6km climb of Sliabh Coillite. Well done to Martin and his team of helpers from Barrow Wheelers who put on a great event. It was a pity the turnout was small as the course is beautiful, the evening was warm and sunny and its not often you get to roll down a start ramp! Full results and times later.
Well done Martin Mizgajski and Barrow Wheelers who have taken on the task of organising this years hill climb champs. The event will take place at 5.00pm next Saturday on the well known Sliabh Coillte climb opposite the JFK Park near New Ross. All catagories will be catered for from A1 to underage. Its only a few minutes of pain so hopefully a good turnout this year.
