KEVAN Underhill was a victor in his age-group category for Weaver Valley Cycling Club during the third round of the Cheshire Series last week.

He led a break of four riders early on at Holt before they were caught by the bunch after 10 miles.

Alan Forrester (Graham Weigh RT), contesting the over 65s class, moved clear to take a solo success while Underhill edged out the best of the rest in a sprint to the line.

It was enough to earn him first prize in the overs 60s race.

He continued a busy week at the Steve Jones Memorial Road Race on Sunday, this time finishing fourth in class.

Dave Curran was quickest during the latest round of Weaver Valley’s 10-mile time trial series for the Guardian Cup, stopping the clock in 23:49.

Seven days earlier Dave Walker’s name had been top of the pile after he posted 21:49, while Carol Robson was fastest female on duty in 29:29.

Walker was the pick of Weaver Valley’s contingent during the Manchester and District Time Trial Association’s 25 the previous weekend.

He ranked 15th in a field of more than 100 riders completing a course on roads near Middlewich in 56:08.

Sam Taylor sneaked inside the top 20 with 57:09, while Alistair Stanway also dipped below an hour in 59:38.

Craig Sephton (1:02.21), Colin Carthy (1:04.23) and Dan Robson (1:10.42) were in action too.

Lynsey Astles was third among the veteran women, timing 1:08.42, ahead of Carol Robson who clocked 1:14.48.

Professional rider Steve Cummings, a previous national time trial and road race champion, powered to victory by more than two minutes, while Deborah Moss (Team Merlin) won the women’s event.

The former, representing Birkenhead North End Cycling Club, posted 50:21.
