Another big field of 27 riders turned out to take on the 2.5 mile mill hill at Shoreham in the final evening hill climb of the season. The evening had taken on a distinct autumn feel with a fresh south westerly breeze giving an edge to the sunshine.

Patrick Brown took the win, with the rider from VC Venta finishing with a time of 7:50,  a full 20 seconds ahead of second placed rider Mark Day (URDT). Francis Schofield was the first Mitre rider as he came home 2 seconds later in third place.  Sharona Harrington was the first woman, finishing in a time of 10:16.  Full results below.
