You are more likely to overheat going up hill. You produce more heat doing them and there's less airflow to cool you down. Don't discount pouring a bit of water on your head.

Anyway, it's not clear whether taking the lane would have been legal there (or customary).

The truck passed the cyclist much earlier in the block. The cyclist, almost certainly, the truck was there (and knew for a while). The issue is that the cyclist expected the truck was going straight.
