The Gas Hill Gasp is a race with a difference. It is a 4 up knockout Hill Climb Competition, heats, through to finals.
Great News we also have a sponsor in the Form of Alan Boswell Financial Planners. This will enable us to take the promotion up a notch.
It is part of the new Norwich Lord Mayor's Celebrations and attracts a capacity crowd of some 2500 to 3000. The 'Gasp' has been adopted by the locals as their 'own' and enjoy the publicity for their area of the City the 'Gasp' gives them.
Gas Hill is short but 20% at the top and is the steepest in Norfolk! Every race and rider is cheered on, the more you struggle the louder the cheer! To win you have to climb Gas Hill 4 x so to make it worth your while there is a minimum prize list of £750.
