Brackston sets new course record on Leith Hill

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!
