Hecklers required for this weekends uphill pedalling extravaganza!

Retrobike have entered an elite specialist squadra in the 2 x Brighton Mitre Hill Climbs on Sat 11th Oct and the 1 millionth Catford Hill Climb and Bec CC Hill climb on Sun 12th Oct. Thats 4 hill climbs races in 2 days. Drafted in to the team will be Ryan Henry and Wayne (insane in the memWayne) Bennett, both "elite" mtbers along with myself. If anyone fancies coming to watch, or more importantly, heckle, i can provide more details or just google the events. This could be the most opportune moment to dust off the old mountain mayhem favourites - "use the hill" (birdman), "biiiig riiiiiing" (jv) and "you can do it if you b and q it" (heathy).
