Nanaimo Hill Climb Championships in Nanaimo BC on October 9th
The threat of heavy rain and high winds, combined with a busy weekend, - the Victoria marathon/half marathon on Sunday and Bowen Park Cross on the Rock on Monday,- kept most riders away from Nanaimo Hill climb Championship. As a result, only five men and one youth contested the third annual ascent of the tough Duomont /Wiegles course. Brodie Hay, OBB, was first off and, though passed by the men, won the youth award with a 26:42.
The first man to start was newcomer Patrick Paquette, Tri BC and he locked down first place with a time of 12:44 which beat Stefan Jacobsen's record by a scant three seconds and garnered him the $50 bonus prize. The other notable ride was second place Dave Kenny, BCMCA, who, at 69 years old, had a handicap-corrected time of 12:50 . It was heartening to see a good number of volunteers come out to help (more than the number of competitors!).
