FWCC are clinging in vain to the idea that it is still summer, with the final event in the 2018 summer league occurring on Sunday: the hill climb. Named in memory of great friend and excellent hill climber Iain O'May, this event is a regular end-of-season fixture. The marker post between the hard charging racing season and the steady autumn and winter club runs. Ideal summer conditions were pouring from the sky above the infamous Fairlie Moor road outside Largs, and a less than balmy gale was howling off the Firth of Clyde. The lithe, slightly emaciated form of Sean Barron emerged from the mist at the 223 meter summit to claim victory in a time of 7 minutes and 13 seconds. A superb ride. But even more impressive was rider Colquhoun, whose strange ten mile training circuits around the back streets of Saltcoats have clearly had an effect. Arriving in his trade mark yellow Mini, front wheels locked, and with thirty seconds to spare before the race start, Neil stormed up the 20% gradient in 08:42, annihilating riders Broadfoot (09:08), Boyle (09:45) and Gillies (10:03) in the process.
