Team Herbalife Wheelbase cyclist Lynn Hamel (third picture above) wins the Lady’s National Hill Climb Championships. Riding the 4.4m course up Long Hill in Derbyshire it was the culmination of a season long effort for Lynn, who won the event by 20 seconds.

“My preparation for this year’s championship has been very different to other years due to the length and rather shallow gradient of Long Hill. Unlike previous years with short steep climbs where a light bike is essential, this year’s hill was as much about aerodynamics as light equipment.
I practiced the hill three times and each time learning from my mistakes of setting out too hard, using too bigger  a chain ring and trying to push too bigger a gear. My training consisted of ten to fifteen minute efforts on the time trial bike, static and using a turbo trainer. Quite different to previous years training on a steep local hill!

Race day arrived – it was sunny and mild at 17 degrees but with a gusty head wind. I planned to split the race into three five minute sections giving each section a colour. First five minutes blue zone for keeping cool and calm. Second five yellow zone for starting to raise the pace and final five, red zone for go, go, go and hold it to the line!

Team Herbalife24 Results at the Leadville 100 MTB race 2011

Team Herbalife rider Nate Whitman had a career-best day time wise, crossing the line 19th in 7:06:48. The significance? It was Whitman’s best ever time by some 19 minutes, and marked his 10th finish at Leadville, earning him a place in the exclusive 1,000-mile club.

“It was a dream ride for me today,” said Whitman, who spent the better part of the last month living in Leadville, while running the on-site Herbalife24 Basecamp. “To ride on the wheels of guys like Tinker, Alban Lakata and Carl Decker was an amazing experience. Leadville just seems to bring out the best in me. But it was a crazy day. I was in the chase group early, and everything was nice and smooth. But when Alban got back into the group after he flatted, he was so much stronger that it just shattered everybody else. Then it was just every man for himself.”

Whitman’s teammates Gerry Cody (10th) and Nate English (20th) gave Herbalife a day’s best three in the top 20.
