Paul Lockyer capped off a stellar first season as a New Forest CC member by taking the Hill Climb victory at Bolderwood last Sunday. The hill climb is a short brutal affair where maximum effort is required for just a few minutes.

Paul completed the climb in 4 minutes and 5 seconds and maxxed out at a mammoth 925W, some thirty seconds clear of runner up, Stewart Ward Who recently ascended Le Mont Ventoux in a club record time couldn’t close the gap to Paul. “I thought I might have a shot today, but Paul has been class all year”, Stewart commented after the event.
