I decided to try another hill climb along with my friend Mike Woolley. He was riding his new Tenere, and I was on his KTM 940 so we thought we would see how they compared. I was riding on trail tyres but Mike had full knobblys on his, and both the bikes were wholly unsuitable for the sport of hill climbing but who cares, we had great fun and were warmly welcomed by all. As it happened our times were within a few tenths of each other, although much slower than all the pro's there. We even got thrashed by the guy who turned up on an old dommie with knobblys on. Fantastic place and I really liked the hill climbing, and I fully intend to do more of the same next year, as does Mike.
