A big night for Zinj – winning the hillclimb, getting a PR AND finding himself in the Overall Series lead. Ben is on the top of the hillclimb standings and things are getting close as we enter the last 5 weeks of the series. Lots of other PRs tonight as well – Henry vdB, 1:21, Henry W, 1:02, Ben, 58, Zinj, 57, Andy, 34 and Melissa, 21. Melissa found a way to self-quarantine and still sort-of race with the rest of us as her daughter was running a high fever. We all wish her and her family the best.

Here is a link to the series so far:
