The 2013 Super 7 is finally completed and CONGRATULATIONS to Desmond “Wily Fox” McKeown who deservedly took the victory by seeing through his game plan to become the first person to complete all 7 events and earn the 7 bonus points.
So assured was Des of his victory that he did a “Pedro Delgado” and missed his start time for the hill climb, clipping in 10 seconds late and taking off Des was resigned to not winning the hill climb and instead treated it as a victory parade!
Congratulations too to Malcolm Page who showed great versatility through the year completing the Reliability Ride, Time Trial, Shropshire Hill Challenge Ride, Duathlon and Hill Climb…Malcolm has competed in almost everything this year including the Four Up Team Time Trial and this persistence saw him pip Aidan Dodd for 2nd place.
Matthews Blythe’s predictably impressive ride in the Newport Shropshire CC Open Hill Climb saw him as the first Newport club rider home again and enabled him to save face as he tied on points with his little sister.
Another notable ride was by club newcomer, young Sam McGowan. Sam was 1st Junior and 7th overall but more significantly posted a time which saw him come in ahead of many seasoned, talented riders.
