WEAVER Valley Cycling Club youngster Harry Dexter gave another indication of his prodigious talent at the weekend.

In the club’s open Hill Climb competition, the 19-year-old was Weaver Valley’s fastest rider as he completed the legendary Cat and Fiddle climb out of Macclesfield in 21:34.

Dexter finished as the second-fastest junior and 14th overall.

Carol Robson was the club’s fastest rider in the women’s race as she finished third overall, stopping the clock at 29.38 to pip clubmate Kaylee Inglis by just five seconds.

Other Weaver Valley contenders were Lynsey Jim Duffy (22:28), Andy Milligan (25.14), Dan Robson (26.58) and Lynsey Astles (31:31).

Swift Carbon Pro Racing’s Ed Laverack won the overall event in a time of 18:31 – a remarkable result considering he had only finished riding in the Tour of Britain the previous day – while Velo Club Melyd’s Lucy Lee won the women’s race in 23:36.

Elsewhere, Emily Martin was just one second away from second place in the Racing Chance Foundation Cheshire Series 25-mile time trial.

Martin clocked 1:02:14 in the women’s race but her time was just shy of that recorded by Pro Vision’s Sarah Grant.

Sam Taylor was 15th overall in the men’s race as he completed the course in 58:36.

Meanwhile, Dave Walker set a new personal best in the West Cheshire Time Trial Cycling Association’s rescheduled 50-mile time trial on Sunday as he clocked 1:53:48.
