Sixteen-year-old a close second to record-breaker in Wheelers’ Open Hill Climb

Andy Nichols, of Team B38, broke his own course record by nearly five seconds when winning Birdwell Wheelers Open Hill Climb up Well Hill to Green Moor, on Sunday.

Sixteen-years-old Kieran Smith, of Bolsover and District CC, surprised many older riders by finishing a close second and fastest woman was Emilie Verroken, of MaxxRRT.

Twenty-six riders from as far afield as Nuneaton took part with three riders from the organising club. The wet and windy weather earlier in the day relented but the riders had to cope with a damp road surface.
