Lookout Mtn Hillclimb Jrs.

Race Report and Results: Lookout Mountain Hill Climb, Golden, CO - Vic's Espresso Juniors
Riders: Zack Gould 13-14, Alden Lowney 17-18

Author: Burt Henry

The Lookout Moutain hillclimb always hosts a large junior field, and today was no exception in spite of threatening weather. The roads however, remained dry while the upper half of the mountain was blanketed in heavy cold fog.

Zack Gould stormed the climb to take the victory in the 13-14 men. Zack just keeps growing taller, but in spite of his lanky and still growing frame, he's still able to produce big watts to climb fast. When he slows down some in the growth department and starts to fill out more, we're gonna see some monster wattage output. Congrats Zack!

Alden Lowney came oh so close. In what turned into a 3 man show for the overall juniors title, Alden was nosed out by a tire width on the line by a very promising rider named Max Burney. Danny Hiller lost contact in the last push for the line and finished a few seconds back. Alden's time of 20:20 is excellent, especially considering the cold damp conditions and the fact that he was making pace for much of the race instead of taking advantage of sitting in with a larger field.

Nice going today juniors!
