On Saturday 24th September 2016 we assembled on Leith Hill to watch 54 brave riders take on the John Bornhoft Memorial Hill Climb. The conditions looked perfect for a fast time, with a tail wind up the climb. We were duly rewarded with a blistering climb by Rowan Brackston of Imperial College Cycling Club who set a new course record of 3:27.50, narrowly beating the previous record set by Tejvan Pettinger in 2014. Chapeau!
