2008 Hill Climb Championship

This year’s national hill climb championship was held at Cheddar Gorge in Somerset, just south of Bristol.


The winner was James Dobbin, Arctic Shorter Rochford, in a very good time of 6.51.

Second place was David Clark, who just missed out for the second year running.

I finished 7th in a time of 7.14, just 6 seconds behind 3rd place. I finished 7th last year at the 2006, National Hill climb championship in Devon.

    Well done Tejvan. An impressive result, despite the distractions you have had.
    A small taste of what is to come next year! Some impressive results im sure!

    Cheers, Andrew.

    I look forward to next year.

    I think we will be planning a 2up TT for next year. For training I want to drag you up all the big Chiltern hills though. Are you up for it? 🙂
