Manchester BC’s Chris Dyke powered to victory in Rutland CC’s hill-climb of Mam Nick near Edale, covering the 1.3 miles in a course record time.
Dyke clocked 6-27.1 to break Peter Graham’s old mark for the course from 1958 – believed to be the longest standing hill-climb course record in the country.
Graham’s old record of 6-34.6 was set while beating Tom Simpson by one second in the 1958 BLRC Championships, so Dyke’s name will go down in illustrious history!
The day was mild and still although not perfect, with the course often offering riders a tail wind assist up the hill.
And as well as Dyke’s course record performance, the fastest female Rebecca Goodson (Sheffrec CC) is also believed to have broken the women’s course record with her time of 8-01.2, breaking Elizabeth Stedman’s previous best by 24 seconds. Stedman also improved her time this year.
And Eugene Cross (SSLL Racing Team) also set a new record in the junior category, clocking 6-57.5,and Joe le Sage (Rutland CC) was fastest in the veterans event with 7-33.1.
The win for Dyke is the latest in a string of good results which have seen him win the Glossop Kinder Velo climb of the Snake Pass, while he was second in the Fibrax Wrexham RC climb of the Horseshoe Pass last month.
