Don Sloan & Martin Reid turned up on a wet, windy and cool night just in case the weather changed but not expecting any riders to show up. It's an HCC custom to always be there - just in case. Chris Kiriakopoulos also showed up - with a stopwatch in one hand and a bike in the other! Guess what 4 brave riders showed up and Chris "threw away" the stop watch to make it 5!
The climbers faced a blast of wind half way across the bridge and the rest of the way up - but all put in excellent times. Rob lost 5-10 seconds with a shoe that wouldn't lock in at the start. Well done!
|1st||Doug Richards (Mad Dogs & OCA)||4:50|
|2nd||Mike McCaughey (Mad Dogs & OCA)||4:51|
|5th||Karen Watson (Thunder Bay CC)||6:12|
Terry Spielvogel was defending trophy holder from '03 80km TT with a 2:06. Eevent was won by Waterloo rider Bert Cordilla but trophy was won by full HCC member Doug Taylor as fastest HCC rider.
It was a sunny day - cool to start with modest cross wind from the north.

Snake Hill Climb July 28th
Rescheduled due to road condition which did not improve. Accordingly the race finished before the bridge reducing the distance to approximately 4km.
Chris's mountain bike team which will compete in London soon went off first and we have treated them as a separate race.
There was some confusion as to the finishing point when the finish timekeeper overlooked an earlier marker and set up shop 200 metres further down the road. This impacted a couple of our mountain bike riders.
Andy Keyes Century RR - Ayr - July 17th
Race started 14 minutes late due to the number of associate entrants!. How exciting to at last have a good field!
In the 5th lap Sean Scott jumped and a three person break formed quickly. The break gradually build up from a few seconds to 30 seconds end of lap 5 and 3 minutes by the end of the 8th lap. In the last lap the peleton cut that down to two minutes notwithstanding a crash coming into town that brought Jason Cormack and Ian Fisher down. Ian got back onto the peleton, Jason got back to his car slowly suffering an injured shoulder.
The break had some interclub strategizing resulting in an HCC rider Garth taking the race victory and the cup.
Doug Taylor, Naomi Cermack and our Chris stayed together from the 3rd lap. Chris cramped up in the last lap coming in 13th.
Marva soldiered on the entire 100km notwithstanding getting lapped. That's being a real hero Marva!
