Charge bikes who put up the prizes at last weekend's Hill Chasers event in the centre of Bristol have produced a cool behind the scenes (and in front too) of all the action from Park St with contributions from amongst others Liquigas Cannondale pro Ted King who flew over from the US to take part.
King and the rest of the riders were lured to Park St by the opportunity to win a Gold Charge Plug with a rather natty silver Plug for second place… did we mention road.cc contributor John Whittington won that? Yea perhaps we did.
6000 people turned out on a cold night in February to watch 32 riders, including 16 local qualifiers, take on the hill… here's the action and the atmosphere from a great night in Bristol.
Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
