Beating the pros on Box Hill: Tim Stevens' challenge

Tim Stevens

Former Great Britain rider, time trial strongman and Strava legend Tim Stevens will attempt to scale the famous Box Hill climb in Surrey on Friday evening (July 19) in under nine minutes in a unique charity fund-raising event.

Stevens, 52, has already beaten the Strava times set by pro riders during the London-Surrey Cycle Classic Olympic test event in August 2011, and is currently third on the Box Hill (roundabout to peak) leaderboard to former Irish professional David McCann, whose time on the climb was set during the London 2012 road race last August, and IG-Sigma Sport pro Wouter Sybrandy.
