When Hugh Carthy came to town

Back in 2012, the Holme Valley Wheelers held the first edition of their 2 Day/3 Stage race. Stage one started with mulitple laps up Bardshaw Road in Honley (Holmfirth) in heavy rain. One of the first riders to attack was a young Hugh Carthy, 8 years later and he’s just finished 3rd in La Vuelta a España (Tour of Spain).
