Our local .net geek bicycle racing star

While I sit on my butt doing .NET, Andrew Knight, who is also a local web programmer, a VTdotNET member and used to host our user group meetings when he worked at Burton Snowboards, uses his spare time for much better use. I am always so thrilled to read about his accomplishments. This past weekend, he placed 3rd in the Mt. Washington road race. (photo) I believe he was 4th last year.  I hope that he’s sporting a red polka dot shirt this week!

From the FAQ page on the race site:

The Mount Washington Hill Climb is quickly becoming known as the toughest hill climb in the world and as Dick Devellian, past Race Director, says “This is the World Championship of hill climbing. If someone wants to say they are the best climber in the world then they need to prove it here on Mount Washington.”

The Mt Washington Auto Road is 7.6 miles in length, has an average grade of 12% with extended sections of 18% and the last 50 yards is an amazing 22%!
