Former national hill climb champion Adam Kenway (Vitus Pro Cycling) took a clear victory in the Ilkeston CC climb of Holly Lane, while Yasmin Marks (Beeston CC) won the women’s event.
Despite tough conditions on the exposed Derbyshire classic climb some 25 riders competed over 1.1-kilometre climb which has an average gradient of 14 per cent.
A shorter course was used to better reflect the open course previously used in the 80’s.
Kenway, who had helped to clear the course of fallen wet leaves the previous evening, flew up the climb in a winning time of three minutes and six seconds.
The 32-year-old, who finished third in last year’s National Hill Climb Championships, showed his form to win by 28 seconds from Luke Hind (THRE Datawolves R.T) in 3.34.
Rounding off the podium was George Peden (University of Leeds CC) clocking 3.34.
After finishing second in the Rutland CC climb the previous day Yasmin Marks (Beeston CC) took a clear victory in a time of 4.31.
She finished 51 seconds ahead of host club riders Karolina Kucharek in second (5.22) while
Fellow Ilkeston CC rider Catherine Hughes took third in 6.21.
