Thought about it, but no spectators allowed on the hill, so will watch the live stream.

Well, I am getting nothing from the evil Facebook, so I presume you need to be a member.

I managed to get the livestream feed on https://www.facebook.com/Velo29  (have fbk acct)  But, really poor sound & constant buffering.  Seems they have been taken it offline now, presumably to try & fix the gremlins.

I don't think you have to be a member - they just appear to be having a few problems with the technology.

Lovely day and great to be there. I did my PB on the hill in 3:21 and finished 183rd in the men. I was hoping for a bit better, but the level on the day was insane. Fast people got stuffed by very fast people who in turn got stuffed by very very fast people, who in turn got stuffed by Feather, Bell and Co. climbing at > 3,000 mt/h. Even young Cameron Biddle who had the course record only managed 10th.

Season over, now time to look forward to the next one
