“Hill Chasers” was the second installment of Van’s Rumble Cycle Challenge. We met at the VUBC shop at 7.30am to sign waiver forms and size up the competition. After a safety briefing we headed off for our first look at the track.
Amril and his band of organisers had found a closed stretch of freshly-paved road not far from the VUBC shop. All we had to do was clear away some loose stones and other rubble. It wasn’t long before we could lay down a finish line and start racing.
We were in teams of two or three riders. Each team’s result was determined by the time of the second rider across the finish line. We had so much fun charging up the hill that we decided to ride the hill twice and take the average time to determine the winning team.
Here we all are after our two runs.
Then it was back to the VUBC shop where Ray worked out the final results.
Leong and his brother were a team of two, but they had enough firepower between the two of them to win overall honours. On a mountain bike and a foldie no less. Here are the happy winners with the event organisers: Ray, YC, Vanessa and Amril on the right.
There was also a prize for the fastest individual. That went to a roadie.
We are all now looking forward Rumble Cycle Challenge Part Three. The Scavenger Hunt on 16th June.
