Last weekend one of our employees – Jude Taylor took on the Lancashire Road Club hill climb on ‘The Rake’ very near to our head office in Ramsbottom.
The climb is recognised as one of the top 100 hardest in the country and was used to host the national hill climb in 2012.
Living locally Jude has had plenty of chance to prepare for the effort. Riding his specialist hill climb bike, he completed the climb in 2:36.9, placing him sixth overall behind some very talented climbers, including the 2014 national champion.
Jude was very pleased with his effort and will continue focussing his training for the national hill climb in three weeks where he aims to finish in the top 20. Well done Jude!
