We're following London based climber John Blight as he embarks on a British hillclimb season with full commitment in every aspect. The British hillclimbing season is a long standing part of British cycling heritage and is one of the most specialist pursuits, the ultimate race against not only the clock but also gravity. In a three part feature series we'll bring you an insight into John's #ProjectHillClimb. He's trained specifically for the events and built up a specialist bike for the job, he'll be tackling upwards of 5 climbs including London's Urban HillClimb, which we'll be attending. View the visual story of the building of his customised Cannondale Supersix Evo Hi-Mod by Bart at East London's Super Domestique below. Part 2 will include a full bike portrait along with the specs and Q&A with with the man himself. Stay locked in and follow the journey.
