Beacon Old Boy nails Catford Hill Climb and 2nd in BEC Hill

Serious congrats to Richard Bussell (again) for last weekend's results beating the holder of the Catford Hill Climb by 2.3 seconds in 1min 50.9 secs to take first and then getting second the following day on the Bec hill climb just missing top spot by 0.6 seconds. Very, very strong competition on those climbs, great result, well done doesn't do justice to the effort!

Great results, best of luck to Richard for the upcoming National Hill Climb Championship - I assume he gets an entry this year.

You can bet on Paddy Power if you're that way inclined, also doing E/W which is definitely worth a go:

Well done again Richard. A Beacon rider on Paddy Power odds must be a first?

First rider to have won the National 10 and the National Hill Climb Championship in the same year?

He won by 5 seconds! Superb achievement. Get your tickets bought for annual dinner as he's presenting prizes. His 10 Mile National Champ bike will be there, hopefully his hill climb bike complete with 105 pedals and leather toestraps will be too?

So who backed him big? Nearly £100 winnings for me :D
