ALAN Kemp is just one win away from invincibility in the Percy Stallard Series after claiming yet another victory last weekend.

The Weaver Valley Cycling Club star battled against wind and rain to complete the 45-mile circuit at Warwick to triumph in the series’ fourth round.

Kemp made a break on the last mile and deservedly won by five lengths. Clubmate Dave Astles crossed the line in the main pack some five minutes behind Kemp.

Three Weaver Valley riders made the long journey to the North East where they competed in the Tyneside Vagabonds 47-mile Mountain time trial event.

Nic Butterworth was the fastest with a personal-best time of two hours 26 minutes and 54 seconds. He was followed by clubmates Paul Lawson and Craig Lee.

Last Tuesday, the Mid Cheshire club were represented at the TLI Summer Series at Lower Withington.

A club spokesman said: “Conditions were far from perfect with a near gale-force wind, making riding in a bunch quite tricky, but all rode well and no crashes occurred.”

In the over 40s, Butterworth came fourth with Chas Readman in the chasing pack.

In the over 50s race, first WV rider home was eighth-placed Graham Gregory, pursued by Eleanor Underhill, Mark Thompson and Astles.
