The Catford “Hill Climb Classic” 2012

Lovely video of the recent The Catford “Hill Climb Classic” (last year was good too; here). The hill climb TT is a British institution. Every year at the end of the [RTTC] time trial season is the ‘hill climbs’, a short calendar series of events with a championship event (this year it was on the Rake climb, Ramsbottom). It’s brutal and everyone should try at least one in their lifetime (maybe). The Catford is Yorks Hill, a 707yd climb with an average gradient of 12.5%, with two stretches of 25%. Needing an all-out lung bursting effort. The current record of 1min 47.6 was set by Phil Mason (San Fairy Ann CC) in 1983 and despite the inducement of a special prize has not been broken in 19 years!
