It was a bracing morning as the riders gathered at the foot of the first of two hill climbs taken on in this years competition.
The event is promoted in accordance with Peterborough Cycling Club and attracted a good crowd of supporters on both hills. They were certainly looking for suffering riders on the first climb from Ketton to Collyweston, gathering on the left hand bend where the gradient pitches up to over 15%.
Thankfully the sun was out despite the cold and the heavy rain of the previous afternoon had abaited.
The times were really competitive and it ended up as a closely fought competition.
Massive contratulations to all the riders and thanks to those who made the event possible.
