National Hill Climb Champion 2019

Fantastic news for OV Hayley Simmonds (Cr 99-06) who stormed to victory at the 2019 National Hill Climb Championship.

Hayley says, “I was really happy to end my season with victory at the National Hill Climb Championship. As soon as the course was announced as Haytor (a long climb) I knew that it would suit me and wanted to target the event.

My preparation went well in the run up to the race but when my power meter died on the start line I can’t lie that I was slightly concerned! However I still managed to execute my race plan and put in a really strong ride, beating my previous course record by 45 seconds and taking the win by 12 seconds.”
