Peak Achievement

It’s eons since I last posted anything on this site. I have had that many projects on the go this year that to chuck one more ball up into the air would have resulted in all of my balls bouncing off the floor! Not a pretty picture.

Speaking of pretty pictures I thought I would go a little easy on myself for this comeback gig and create a photo story. Less words, more piccies. If a picture paints a thousand words I have just saved myself about 28000 of em.

And so it was that last Sunday I set up shop at the (in)famous Monsal Hill Climb. A staple on the Hill Climb calendar since 1930 a record 192 mountain goats signed up for this edition. Celebrity spectators on the day included a Knight (Sir Dave Brailsford), a Dame (Sarah Storey) alongside her hubby and fellow Olympic legend Barney, and a couple of Downings.

Competition was fierce as expected with last years men’s winner and current national champion Adam Kenway (Team Raleigh) taking top honours. Rebecca Goodson (Velo Schils Interbike) triumphed in the Women’s race improving on her 2016 result by two places.

Anyway enough words, let the photos tell the tale.
