The only race where there is no pedaling involved. With the crank strapped to the frame with an old fashioned toe clip strap
you can just sit on the bike and freewheel as far as you can.
The Down Hill/Freewheel contest saw a very good turn out of around 30 riders with around 20 testing their downhill skills.... Including multiple World, European & National Champion -
The favourable wind conditions mention that the distances were a little longer this year, with strong bench marks being put down early on. Despite the hype and banter between last years winner Matt Morris and multiple former winner Robin Kyte it was new member Chris Harris (left) who stole the show piping Robin by less than half a wheel and Matt having an off day.... World Champion Andy Tennant not far behind along with Veterans Cyclo-
Dave Hill was very pleased with the large turn out which meant that not everyone could fit into the Spiders Web Cafe, meaning that we had an 'overspill' section at the local garden centre!
In all it was a welcome change from the training and competition -
It did however highlight the fact that the younger riders did not know how toe straps worked!
As they say a sign of modern times'!
The good old fashioned toe strap!!!
