The British National time trial championships were held on Sunday despite the weather trying hard to stop it! The atmosphere around the 29.4mile circuit was amazing with European, World and Olympic medalists, and even postmen, setting about tackling the race.
The event was won by Team Sky professional Cyclist Alex Dowsett in a time of 58.26, who is in the form of his life recently taking his first professional road win the weekend before. Next Came Dowsett’s team mate Steve Cummings 58.45, this was then followed by Matthew Bottrill (1.00.14) clad in a Smart Aero Skinsuit, gloves and overshoes.
From the man himself: “I’m made up with this medal, everybody that knows me well, will know how hard I have trained for this and all the sacrifices I have made to get to this level. I owe them and everybody that supported me on the day a big THANKYOU! The highlight of the day was taking Isla with me to collect my medal a moment I will never forget”
Well done matt on a fantastic ride!
