The All-Ireland Hill Climb Cycling Championships was held in Tralee in very wet and windy conditions on Saturday. The event which was hosted by Tralee Bicycle Club was a 4KM individual hill climb based in the Sliabh Mish Mountains in Tralee, known locally as “Short Mountain”, which roses to a height of 310 Meters.  Mountainbiker Ryan Sherlock (Mad MTB, Dublin) surprised many pundits by taking first place, followed closely by local favourite and defending champion Paul Griffin (Earl of Desmond/Tralee BC) in second place with Cathal McCarthy (The Edge CC) taking the final podium spot.
