Hill-climb specialist Dan Evans has been amassing an impressive set of results over the past few weeks as he heads towards the 2017 Hill-Climb National Championships.

Evans showed us his latest hill-climb machine at the Holme Valley Wheelers hill-climb event at Holme Moss on Saturday afternoon. The 2014 national champion had previously won the Huddersfield Star Wheelers at Jackson Bridge in the morning and went on to win the Manchester Bicycle Club event the following day.

Long-term Cannondale rider Evans's latest bike is a SuperSix Evo model, modified to suit riding uphill at speed. Naturally, it has several gravity-defying, weight-saving features.

The British Hill-Climb National Championhips take place on Sunday, October 29 at Hedley Hill, Hedley on the Hill, Northumberland.

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
