Nova TT League Round 17 – Darley Head Hill Climb

Event 17 of the Harrogate Nova TT League sponsored by Beech House Dental Practice took place on Wednesday 22nd August and was the second of three hill climbs which conclude the 2018 league competition.

Conditions were cool and breezy for the competitors tackling the 1 mile long Darley Head hill climb on a much improved road surface.

Pete Watson (overall TT league winner) and Huw Spacey (road bike category winner) continued their rivalry by finishing 2nd and 3rd with times of 4mins 37secs and 4mins 55secs respectively however the evening’s honours went to the winner of last week’s Norwood Edge Hill Climb, Jacob Vezey, with a red-hot time of 4mins 25secs

The final event of the 2018 league is gruelling 4 mile hill climb on the private road at Scarhouse Dam where the climbers will contest for further HC honours
