King of the Hill 2013 – Singapore

With King of the Hill 2013 now behind us, the King is now crowned and waiting to be re-crowned for another year. But before I turn your attention to the King and the prizes sponsored by many. I thought I’d bring you a selection of great photos from Chee BPAhmad Danial Irfan and Azrie Halimi. This gallery features images from the King of Hill 2013, the struggling faces of plenty who climbed what seemed to be an impossible feat and the faces of those who brought together a very difficult task of organizing and bringing everything together.

If you don’t know what King of the Hill is, it is a yearly race organised by Team Kayuh Kuat Kuat (KKK) with about 40-60 riders racing one by one, up a hill or steep slope, time-trial style and the fastest rider with the fastest time (well duh) is crowned the King of the Hill. The previous year’s King of the Hill was held at Mount Faber. This year’s location was only released 2 days before the race event, giving just enough time for riders to test drive the hill. Unbeknownst to all, the location was released on facebook at 0000 hours and was at Lorong Sesuai.

The winner of this year’s King of the Hill is Zachary.

Well enough of the chatter, check out the gallery below. What you see is what you get.
