Ludlow CC Wigmore Road Hill Climb
Is anyone likely to stop Kirk Vickers in his defence of The Coaching Revolutions Hill Climb Series as the Rhino Velo rider made it another win at Ludlow. Vickers made it the maximum 80 points on offer so far and was in no mood to release his stranglehold on the competition at Ludlow CC's Wigmore Road climb in Round 4. The longest event on the calendar, the 1.95 mile climb saw him throw himself across the finish line in
