Dan Evans.

Dan Evans took his second win of the day as wife Jessica was the fastest woman at Holme Valley Wheelers hill-climb on Saturday afternoon.

Stage two saw the riders take on the V997 climb, which reaches 16% gradient in places, after the morning’s event in which Dan Evans already had a victory to his name.

And the 37-year-old ASSOS Equipe UK rider from Colwyn Bay made it two wins in the space of four hours, claiming the second stage and the overall prize.

He stopped the clock in 7:04.4, affording the Welsh national champion a winning margin just under ten seconds, his ninth hill climb triumph this season.

Andy Cunningham (All Terrrain Cycles) claimed second in 7:14.2, with Kieran Savage taking his second podium of the day, following up his mornings second with a third place in 7:20.6 for Team B38-Underpin.

Jessica Evans.

Just two weeks out from the national championships, Evans will be hoping his excellent form will continue and can carry him to success in Northumberland.

After a second place behind Fiona Burnie in the morning’s event also in Holmfirth, it was Jessica Evans who took victory in the women’s competition.

Teammate of husband Dan, as well as retaining her Welsh championship in September, Jessica stopped the clock at 9:47.3 to take a 26 second victory and the overall prize.

Second place went to veteran Claire Swoboda (Chorlton Velo) with Gemma Hobson (Sussex Nomads) taking third.

Meanwhile, Pete Laud (Common Lane Occasionals) was the quickest veteran, whilst Yorkshire RC’s Tommy Dawson was the fastest juvenile.
