Up The Buttress 2014: Results and photos

by 6

With the infamous cobbles of the Buttress running greasier than an Ali Baba’s kebab, it was clear that anyone taking part in this year’s Up the Buttress Hebden hill climb would have to spend time working on optimal tyre pressure and pedalling technique if they wanted to be in with a chance of winning.

Another good turnout saw riders battling for traction in front of an encouraging/heckling crowd for a chance to win something from the prize pile kindly donated by race sponsors.

But enough of that, here’s some bike mounted police doing their bit for community relations (thanks DazH for capturing the moment)…

Thanks to the sponsors:

Only 400 yards of greasy cobble to go
If you made it this far you still had a way to go
Polite encouragement

 

Race face on…

Did he make it? Fat Chance
The start of the corridor of heckle
Ballast or baby participation? You decide…

    Was that Matt Wild with the electric shouty tube?

    out of interest – did any fat bikes take part? Were they any good?

    No fat bikes took part.

    Ah well, it looked fun unless you were a member of the law enforcement community 🙂

    I’m with wwaswas – a fatbike would have been the perfect weapon
