Millar said: “As a true petrol head, there’s no better place to set a cycling speed record than the most iconic automotivevenuein the country.

The descent is steepest at the top, but you only have a limited time to get to a high speed as before you know it you’repassing the famous flint wall and braking hard intoMolecombCorner, you really have to trust your instincts. Itwas a real buzz and something I never expected I’d be doing on my road bike.”
