New Forest CC Club Hill Climb, Results

Lenton pips Ward to be crowned Hill Climb Club Champ
Graham Lenton produced an explosive burst of power on the final stretch of the New Forest CC hill climb at Bolderwood to claim the hill climb title for 2016. In stunning late summer conditions and in the heart of the equally stunning New Forest, no one could give anything less than full gas as the top four positions were covered by a meagre six seconds. As the climb rears up to 9% Graham dispatched over 530 watts and held onto the slim advantage and he had worked for in the easier section of the course. Graham commented afterwards, I decided to keep it in the big ring and give it everything I had, and just hold on. Steward Ward who finished one second off Graham’s time was quite philosophical after the event, there’s no room for complacency on an event like this, and no excuses, I gave it all but Graham just had that bit extra, fair dos to him. Phil Grant in third was only two seconds behind Graham’s winning time in 4:29.
