Matthew Burton (Velo Club Rutland) took the victory in the 2015 Waller Pain hill climb in Caterham, Surrey, on Sunday, just missing out on equalling the event record by one second. Burton topped the record list of over 100 competitors.

Burton tackled the steep ascent of Waller Lane in one minute and 15.3 seconds, just short of the mark set by Matthew Pilkington in 2011.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
