It's simple for Simon; CYCLING.

ORMESBY rider Simon Baxter saw off an illustrious field to win Hartlepool Cycling Club's blustery 10-mile time trial at Crathorne.

The 23-year-old (Adept Precision/Bike Traks) who is aiming for a professional contact built on his 12th place in the Sam Walton Border Trophy Road Race by topping the time sheets in 20 minutes 52 seconds.

Against the clock specialists Kevin Dawson, Keith Murray and Julian Ramsbottom were beaten into second, third and fourth places by the former Nunthorpe School pupil.

Dawson finished in 20min 56sec, Murray recorded 21min 15sec and Ramsbottom set 21min 40sec.

Baxter followed up by teaming up with Roger Godley and Ricky Stevenson to help Bike Traks win the standard relay race at the Stockton Triathlon by a five-minute margin.

He did the fastest bike leg as middle distance running specialist Ricky Stevenson recorded the quickest 10km time and Godley took to the water for the 1,500 metres.
