In recent months, Tejvan has been hampered by an injury and this was his first hill climb win of the season. Speaking after the event Tejvan said:

"I was pleased with the ride, I haven't done much training in past few months, so I wasn't sure how I would do. After missing quite a few events with injury, it was nice to win one hill climb before the end of the season."
