Race Report – 23 Feb 2021  ACM Hill Climb Champs – Kaka Amu Rd

This years hill climb ITT championship was a 5.7km course on Kaka Amu Road which winds its way up the side of Rangitumau, a local peak and landmark.

It’s not a brutal climb like the Admiral Hill Road or as long as the Kaurarau climb never the less it’s challenging to do it as an individual time trial. The start is a long false flat leading into the first ramp that winds past the hall. Thereafter several more distinct ramps are interspersed with flat ish sections eventually leading onto the final false flat and the finish line.  

The effort was made more challenging by the high evening temperature and nor’easterly headwind that made its presence known to the riders.

In all 38 cyclists presented themselves to the start line. In a first for the club (and possibly reflecting the growing number of B.B.‘s  transitioning to this genre) there was a separate E bike catagory with 4 cyclists represented.

All cyclists rode the same course. No short course this week.
