European Hill Climb Road Race Championship: 2020 Series Round Up

As stated before by me, hill climbs in essence aren’t full on pure road races but they are similar in terms of layout when compared to countless roads circuits across planet earth.

The five round FIM Europe supported European Hill Climb Road Race Championship which was delayed to late September, due to the Covid-19 pandemic had events this year solely in Italy with competitors taking in the picturesque, aesthetically pleasing Spolento Forca Di Cerro, Spino courses.
