Thursday 18th August saw Cuchulainn CC host the Leinster and Louth Hill Climb Champs up Jenkinstown Hill. Only 1.6km long but with a 8% gradient. Cuchulainn Ladies once again but in a great performance.Rosemary Gibson also raced but missed out on a podium position. We had new faces to the Champs this year. Conditions were overcast, no rain but just a bit cool.

Roisin Kennedy was the winner, coming in ahead of Ardees Johanna. We'll be keeping our eye on Roisin next year 
;-). Celine got 3rd place only 3 secs behind Johanna. This was Johanna’s first attempt at the Hill Climb Champs.

Johanna claims the coveted Louth jersey just beating Celine. Cuchulainns Rosena Lynch has had a great Bike Station League season. This was her 1st time for the Hill Climb.


Congrats to everyone who took part See you all next year.:-). Thank You V Much to Caroline Kerley for the fab pics :-)
