Reigning Clevedon and District Road Club hill climb champion Kate Millard has enjoyed success at the Odd Down Winter series in Bath.

Odd Down near Bath is the location of a purpose-built 1.5km circuit for cyclists.

Featuring six bends, including two hairpins, it is a technical circuit that demands good bike handling skills.

Strong links with local clubs, and an excellent coaching set-up, mean it is a great place for young riders to get in to the sport in a safe, traffic-free environment. It is also a fantastic venue for racing and is one of the few in the South West where road cyclists can race without venturing onto the public highway.

Reigning Clevedon and District Road Club hill-climb champion, Kate Millard, has made excellent progress in the Odd Down Winter series.

In the last round Kate took a fine third place on a wet and windy day. A series of attacks in the final laps finally split the peleton with first and second placed riders soloing across the line.

Kate proved she can sprint as well as climb by bringing the remains of the group in for a well-deserved podium spot.

With the traditional road-racing season due to start in the spring, Kate’s good winter form will hopefully translate to more success in Clevedon colours.
