Hill Climb events are generally held at the end of the summer time trial season, with riders starting at one minute intervals racing against the clock up either short and extremely steep hills or longer sustained drags.

Often the racing is that intense that volunteers known as ‘catchers’ are waiting just beyond the finish line to help riders dismount and ensure they are supported whilst they recover. Bikes are often stripped back and lightweight as power to weight ratio is the key when racing against gravity.
