NORWALK - A Norwalk man is celebrating a big win at a bike race in New Hampshire.

Eneas Freyre says he came in first out of about 650 riders trekking up Mount Washington over the weekend.

Freyre is the owner of TT Endurance in Westport, which trains local cyclists, runners and triathletes.

Freyre says 25 of his clients joined him and that made it even more special.

Freyre says the average grade of the hill is 12 percent, which is equivalent to riding a bicycle up a very steep driveway for 7.6 miles.

Freyre says it took him about 52 minutes, and that's about a minute quicker than last year.
