A misty wet morning on the Snake Pass greeted the riders for the 2012 Glossop Kinder Velo Snake Pass Hill Climb. But the weather didn’t stop the course record falling and numerous riders setting PBs.
Congratulations to all prize winners, and many thanks to all riders, marshalls, headquarter staff and timekeepers, Gordon Pickering and Tony Millington.
A special mention to the winner, Tejvan Pettinger, for achieving a new course record of 11.40.5 – amazing! Read Tejvan’s blog here
A special mention also to Junior rider Harry Shackleton for finishing 4th overall.
Amazingly, Sam Clark and Chris Baines, both of Buxton CC, finished dead level!
Finally, commiserations to Joanne Blakeley who missed her start position due to a puncture and therefore was reallocated the next available slot. Unfortunately, due to CTT rules this dictates she carried a time penalty of 21.30. Otherwise her finish time would have been 16.42.4 (2nd Lady spot).
