A hill climb, in person, on a hot, sticky, hazy and murky night! There were attacks, there were counter attacks, there were drops, there were counter drops, there were counter attack drops! Man, it was just like the old days! Our first mass start hill climb after a handful of cancellations due to rain and/or 100+ heat indices.

I kind of forget how to post these results since it’s been so long. Of course we had rainy conditions but seemed to be missing massive thunderstorms, so that was nice. Lots of challenges out there today in Hatfield, with lots of road work and sections that were missing asphalt.
It pains me to do this yet again, but tonight’s hillclimb is canceled due to a severe thunderstorm watch.
I’m canceling tonight’s short time trial as the temperature at 6 pm is expected to be 92 degrees and the heat index is off the charts.
Due to the wet forecast and scary road conditions for the descent, tonight’s Skinner Hill Climb is canceled. Our “in-person” hill climb record is now 0 for 2.
A wind from the deep south blew an old friend to the Deerfield TT tonight and he rode the haboob all the way north to McClellan Farm Road and back down south to the River Road fire hydrant near the grass court tennis players.
This may not be a popular decision but today’s results will not count in the standings as I don’t want to penalize those who are smarter than me. Think of it as an awesome training ride or something like that.
It was a little surreal to see some familiar faces and bikes in real life for the first time in about a year and a half.
