Nice Angle

Here’s a clip of Oliver Holmes recently setting a new record up Bouley Bay Hillclimb in Jersey, BJ’s old stomping ground. We think he’s on a KTM something-or-other, but one thing not in doubt is that the boy’s flying! Oh, and at least six-seconds faster than Beej ever went up there, snigger. But that was almost 20-years ago so we’ll let him off, though it’s still rather funny.

The best bit about this clip is the position of the camera, and while we’ve seen similar on the telly at GP’s and whatnot, this is beautifully dynamic and you can spend the entire run just watching how the front-tyre grips the road and deforms under load.

Nice work, Ollie.
