Matthew Pilkington (Progressive Cycle Coaching Development) set a new course record at the second running of the Waller Pain Hill Climb in Caterham, Surrey, on Sunday.

Defying the wet and slippery conditions on the 0.31-mile town-centre course up Waller Lane, Pilkington shaved 12 seconds off the marker set by Hal Bransby (Addiscombe CC) last year.

Simon Richardson (Norwood Paragon) came second with 1-20, and Bransby third at 1-22.

Alex Conway (VC Londres) placed ninth overall to clinch the men's under-16 title, with Molly Cooke winning the under-16 women's category.

Part of the spirit of the Waller Pain is that anyone is welcome to take part in the event and not just club riders. Accordingly, Aaron Moss won the open 'Fat dad' title with Lizzie Elliot bagging the 'Fit mum' trophy. Elliot also won the women's category overall.
