Battistinis, Red Bull Hill Chasers 2012 . . . . . .
Ben Simmons was crowned King of the Hill as 32 riders took to the streets of Bristol at ‘Red Bull Hill Chasers’ in Bristol this weekend.
16 elite level riders and 16 cycling enthusiasts, spanning BMX, mountain bike, road cycling and fixed gear disciplines, came together in an attempt to settle the fierce debate of which bike discipline is best uphill, all of them aiming to be crowned "King of the Hill' and win one of the awesome, specially made, Charge bikes up for grabs.
The 32 riders competed in a gruelling series of head-to-head knockouts on the unforgiving incline of Park Street, in Bristol city centre. The riders were paired randomly giving amateur riders the chance to compete against the elite.
