Adam Pinder (PM Racing UK) rode the winning time in the Stockton Wheelers 10.9-mile hill-climb up Tan Hill near Barnard Castle, while Ellen Powell (Durham Triathlon Club) was the victor in the women’s event.

22-year-old Pinder came out on top, beating scratch man Marcel Schubert (Darlington CC) as he completed the course in 34:34.1.

Schubert had to settle for second as he completed the course in 36:31.7 to miss out on top spot by two minutes. Taking the final spot on the podium was Shaun Tyson (Protech Velo), he clocked in at 37:04.0.

It was something of a surprise win for Pinder who had not competed since mid July and had not won an event all year so far.

In the women’s event it was Durham-based 30-year-old Ellen Powell that claimed the top spot, beating the next fastest woman by nearly two minutes. Powell clocked in at 46:10.5.

Sarah Harrison (Sheffield Triathlon Club) finished in second with a time of 48:08.1, while the final spot on the podium was won by Lucy Home (AIMS Cycling) as she finished in 48:44.5.

Throughout September Powell had been competing in hill climbs only, winning the most recent of those. In her last time trial, the Houghton CC 10, she also finished first.

On a day of rain, hail and heavy wind there were fast times from many of the riders, the fastest veteran on the day was Marcel Schubert in the 40-49 category, in the 50+ it was Shaun Tyson.

The fastest junior rider was Ben Etherington (Manilla Cycling) he finished fourth overall with a time of 37:27.8. In the juvenile category it was Joshua Jewitt (Stockton Wheelers CC) that went fastest, 45:46.9 was his time.
