National Hill Climb Championships 2015

National Hill Climb Championships 2015 took place on the 3rd of October. Organised very well by the Valley Wheelers Cycling Club of Ballingeary, in Co. Cork. It was a tough circuit of over 6 KM starting with the first half of fast rolling countryside but ending with a steep climb of over 2 KM to the finish line. Over 50 riders took part and the club were fortunate to get some podium places for their own members. It was a great day out and hope all enjoyed themselves.

Should be possible to spot yourself in the video. My Neil rode the circuit before hand with the camera to get some riding shots.
