On a crisp dry morning on the hills around Dalham near Newmarket, CC Sudbury, Haverhill Rovers, and West Suffolk Wheelers, met for their annual Interclub hill climb competition. The CCS team comprising of Brian Mann, Simon Daw and James Rush, beat off the opposition to finally claim the Interclub trophy by the narrowest of margins.

James and Simon managed first and second on each of the two hills they climbed, with combined times of three minutes, 21.99 seconds and 3:25.04 respectively.

Senior veteran Brian Mann then had to back up these times with two good rides to ensure CCS was in with a chance of the title. His determined efforts produced a combined time of 4:01.58 which was good enough to seal a CCS victory. Their 144pts total narrowly beat Haverhill's 141pts with WSW third at 89pts.
