    Red Marley, Worcestershire.

    Various shots of motorcyclists trying to ride up a very steep 'freak' hill. Crowds of people watch the attempts - most of them make it. Female entrant Mrs Briggs is seen putting her helmet on and taking her turn at riding up the hill. She manages it the first time but comes off on the second go. Another contestant has his bike zoom out from under him after going over a bump.
