Arrowsmith Bikes Hill Climb Series

It's almost here.. time to build on last years super popular hill climb series, complete with sponsor Arrowsmith Bikes who have stepped up to help out. All races are at 630pm, all have pre reg links. A start list will be posted at 430pm each race day, any who just show up go to the back, no questions asked. The ipad will have been programmed with the start list prior to arrival. $5 per race, or free if you bought the season pass. Racers will start 30s apart. Each race below has the latest results, a pre registration link, and the strava link. Book mark this page! On the strava link, favourite the segment as it'll then show up for you. VOLUNTEERS will be needed. To run the hill climb we need a minimum of 2 people. The main timekeeper will be at the base and will set the first rider off, leaving the assistant with a start list to set people off in 30s intervals. Main timekeeper then races to the finish line at the top and waits for the arrival.
