Pullar wins national hill climb champs

Jack Pullar, winner, National Hill-Climb Championships 2012

Unbeaten in the build up to the final championship of the time trial season, Jack Pullar (Wheelbase.co.uk-MGD) underlined his good form by taking the RTTC hill climb title at the first attempt with a storming ride on The Rake at Ramsbottom, Lancashire.

Riding into a headwind on wet roads, the 22-year-old completed the short, steep 947-yard ascent in 2 min 21.3 sec to push defending champion Gunnar Gronlund (RST Racing Team) - starting ten minutes later - into second place by almost five seconds.
