Course Record Holder Joe Lemire is back after 27 years

  • Thirty-six cyclists came to the starting line for this year’s Hill Climb. Temperatures climbed into the mid sixties during the event making for ideal conditions.

  • Lewis Eliot of Arizona took first place in the men’s division with a 13:28. Lewis first rode the Hill Climb in 1992 when he set a record for the 12 and under category that still stands today. Second place went to Joe Lemire of California with a 14:23, setting a new record for the men’s 65-74 year category. Joe also owns the 35-44 year category record that he set in 1987, and the course record (12:54) that still stands.

  • In the women’s division 17-year old Molly Hamilton of Bozeman took first place with a 16:39, a new record for the women’s 15-17 year category. Second place went to Sarah Raz with a 19:05.

  • Sally Stansberry set a new record of 23:52 in the women’s 65-74 year category.

  • Liz Ann Kudrna, of Bozeman, estabished a record of 46:39 for the women’s handcycle category. Now only two women’s records need to be established: Unicycle and High Wheel.

  • The climb went smoothly thanks to the efforts of the crew of volunteers that put it together. Julie Huck was chief registrar assisted by Rob and Jennifer Milyko, and Wayne Vandeberg. Rob Milyko was course marshal at the starting line. Timing at the top was done by Jake Flaherty and Derek Gallagher under the direction of Dick Lane. Gage Poore was course marshal at the finish line. Geoff McMillion took care of prize distribution. Wayne Vanderberg arranged for refreshments at the at the top.

  • Of course, we want to thank Missoula Bicycle Works for the use of their shop for registration.
