Kieran Wynne-Cattanach and Maisy Vasic were fastest male and female rider respectively at Rossendale Road Club’s hill-climb on the 1,000-metre Wood Plumpton Road in the Lancashire town on Saturday.
Wynne-Cattanach, the 21-year-old University of Chester student who rides for Team B38-Underpin Racing, covered the course in 2-26.8, which was just 1.2 seconds slower than the long-standing course record, set by Malcolm Elliott in 1981.
His time was good enough for the win by two seconds from VC Cumbria’s Niall Paterson, while another Team B38 rider, Jude Taylor, was third, six seconds further back.
In other categories, Team 22 teenager Maisy Vasic was fastest female, the 15-year-old from Manchester clocked 3-59.9, while top veteran was Tony Bowler (Rossendale RC).
The victory was the latest in a string of good performances for hill-climb specialist Wynne-Cattanach. He placed third in last weekend’s Withington Wheelers event, fifth in the competitive Stocksbridge CC climb the same day, as well as winning the Halifax Imperial Wheelers climb on September 22.
