A Pathe News video of Kent’s 37th Annual Hill climb championship on Brasted Hill.
Love the braces, woolly jumpers and billowing shirts. Some chaps really look like they are going so slow they are about to fall off. That’s a proper hill climb. The crowds are amazing. I suppose people didn’t have tv to watch or computers to stare at in those days.
Brasted Hill, 667 yards long. (average gradient 1-7)
W Hussey won in a time in 1 min 54 2/5 secs.
National hill climb tomorrow on Bank Road. I have a cold, but still hope to turn up and ride.
