Hillcrest local and Pro TIB athlete claims yet another victory at the compendium derby over the weekend. Andrew Hill of TIB insurance, a previous winner of the popular event, stormed to victory in a blistering time setting a new course record in the process. Hill, who took control at the head of the race convincingly up the first climb, continued a hard tempo around the 40km fast paced track to take the win by 4 minutes.
“The pace up the first climb was fast and we dropped the rest of the field with Laurens and Erik at the front” commented Hill, “I found myself up with the ReCM guys and knew I would have to push very hard or take a huge risk to ride away from them at some stage”
