National Hill Climb Champs 07

James Dobbin in action

James Dobbin (Arctic Shorter Rochford Racing Team) recorded his second successive
win in the National Hill Climb Championships at Cheddar Gorge on October 28 in a time
of 6 min 51sec.

In damp and blustery conditions, his winning margin of 6 seconds proved
decisive, relegating David Clarke (Blue Sky Cycles) to the silver medal position. Matt Clinton
( was a further 11 seconds away for the bronze medal.

James, who lives nearby in Bath and who has spent many hours training on the hill , commented
" I was really worried about David Clarke. We have had a tussle on more
than one occasion in this year’s hill climb season. I feel really pleased
to win, considering I have missed most of the road season due to injury"
