BURY Clarion riders Declan Brady, David Gamble and Francis Woodcock won the North Lancashire Time Trials Association Hill Climb trophy after beating Ribble Valley by nine seconds.

The trio did not hold back despite the very poor conditions and they had great support from Paul Van Der Kamp and John Yates (father of Bury cycling twins Simon and Adam).

Woodcock was also the fastest junior on the day as Bury made it four team prizes in as many weeks.

Later the same day, the team went to Heaton Park to join Mark Jones, Joanna Cebret, Joe Cadwallader and Jason McDonald in the cross country race.

Six-year-old Dylan Cadwallader and Benjamin Richardson, aged seven, took part in their first race after their coaching as part of Bury bullets – which takes place at Gigg Lane betweenm 5pm and 6pm in friday nights for all ages.

The pair entered quite happy to lose and try their best while at the same time enjoy themselves and they both then stayed on to cheer on other Clarion riders.

Brady was the fastest cross country rider from Bury – an outstanding effort considering he had also rode the Hill Climb in the morning.

Woodcock now has the National Hill Climb Championship in two weeks' time before joining the rest of the Clarion riders for some more cross country racing over the winter.
