Last night our Wheelbase Yorkshire store in Ilkley hosted the Tacx Hill Climb Challenge, with a Tacx Flux S Trainer up for grabs.
Tacx goodie bags were given out to all those who attended the open event which involved a timed virtual hill climb ridden on one of the Tacx smart trainers. The fastest time set on the night was by Sam Lashley, who completed the 349m in a rapid 45 seconds, holding an average power of 651 watts and two seconds ahead of second placed Ben Granger.
About the climb
Gold Hill in Shaftesbury is one of the most iconic and well known hill climbs in England, made famous by Ridley Scott’s 1973 Hovis Bread advert. Although only 349m long, the course packs a great deal of punch – easing you in with a steady tarmac section before ramping up when the cobbles hit.
The latest Tacx smart trainers are in stock and available to buy from our stores and online.
