Gutsy

Hog Hill

This weekend, one of our sales team members, Rhys Howells, went to the east London road race circuit of Hog Hill.

He raced the 3/4ths and won, then got back on his bike and raced for another hour in the 2/3rds and finished up with a silver. For Rhys his day was not over; he went back out onto the tarmac to race the elites and found 9th.

For anyone that knows the circuit, the climb to the the finish line is a serious pain inflicter and nicknamed by local riders as the Hoggenberg.

We guestimate Rhys would have raced up the Hoggenberg roughly 60 times, completing 3 and a half hours of crit racing.

What a brilliant example of gutsy and canny racing by the big man.
