Bexy Dew (Army Cycling) and Tom Williams (Webbs 1902 CC) powered to victory on Hinton Hill in Severn Road Club’s climb on Saturday afternoon.

Prolific hill-climb ace Dew, 27, clocked 2-27.5 for the 800-yard climb, giving her victory in the women’s category by 4.3 seconds from Louise Hart (Datalynx Parenesis Cycling), while Natalie Grinczer (CAMS Tifosi) was another seven seconds back in third.

And 16-year-old Bristol-based Williams clocked 1-54.1 to take the overall victory by 1-3 seconds from Thomas Arkell (East London Velo0, with Richard Gildea (Didcot Phoenix CC) third, six seconds off the pace set by promising youngster Williams.

This was Williams’ first open hill-climb win of the season, with his previous best placing being the fifth spot he secured in the Sodbury Cycle Sport climb two weeks ago.

He is no doubt hoping to record some more victories with planned rides coming up in the university of Bristol CC and Team Tor 2000 events, as well as the National Championships on October 25.

Unlike Williams, Dew’s victory is the latest of several wins she has secured so far this season.

She was fastest female in the Sodbury Cycle Sport climb, as well as winner of the first of two climbs in the Team Swindon Cycles two-stage.

Also in September, she won the Somerset Road Club and Dursley Road Club hill-climbs, while she was also winner of the St Piran 10-mile time trial back in August.

Next weekend Dew is scheduled to ride the university of Bristol CC climb, then followed by the Saint Piran climb of Mount Wellington, and then the season finale National Championships at Streatley in Berkshire.
