Team Herbalife Cyclist Wins National Hill Climb Championships 2011

Team Herbalife Wheelbase cyclist Lynn Hamel wins the Lady’s National Hill Climb Championships. Riding the 4.4m course up Long Hill in Derbyshire it was the culmination of a season long effort for Lynn who won the event by 20 seconds.

Hamel, who rides for Team Herbalife wheelbase.co.uk, said: “My preparation for this year’s championship has been very different to other years due to the length and rather shallow gradient of Long Hill.”

Setting off from the line in sunny and mild conditions, but with a gusty head wind, Hamel recorded a time of 15.38.6, which bettered her previous best on the climb by 37 seconds and represented an impressive average speed of 16.99mph.

She added: “Back at the head quarters the feeling of elation was overwhelming as my last seven weeks of training and learning flashed before me.”
