PETROLHEADS of all ages braved wet and windy conditions to cheer on riders tackling the Red Marley Freak Hill Climb.
The annual Easter Monday ascent at Walsgrove Farm in Great Witley, near Worcester, drew in crowds from far and wide at the classic biking event.
The tricky quarter-mile climb was made all the more difficult thanks to rain turning the track into a mud bath — in stark contrast to last year’s dust bowl terrain.
Despite this, seasoned riders in the various classes, from pre-1950s rigid frames to 350cc and over pre-1971 bikes, hurtled up the slippery hill.
