Newly crowned National 100 champion, was once again in dominating form taking victory in the Janet and Brain Woods 25 mile time trial, promoted by North Notts Olympic. Held near Newark in Leicestershire.

With the 100 mile National championship the weekend before, Bottrill finally eased back this week from training to take a few well earned rest day’s! With just three rides in the week, including a 40 mile training ride with team sponsor and aerodynamic specialist Simon Smart, Bottrill came into the race not expecting much.

Once lined up and the first stroke on the pedals were pushed down, the Giant Trininty Advance SL, was once again flying through the air and the noise coming form the Smart Enve 8.9’s with Ultimate ceramic bearings was a good sign that it was going to be a good day!

The first time check came at 12.5 miles which Bottrill went through in a time of 24.18, and an average speed of 30.8mph but with a stronger tail wind Bottrill pushed a little harder to stop the clock in 48.04, a new course record and a winning margin of over 2 minutes. It was an average speed of 31.2mph.

Asked about the ride Bottrill replied ” Yes, that went pretty well and I surprised myself. I’ve been so tired all week and really thought I would have nothing in my legs coming into the race. Before even staring I felt tired, but a Zip-Vit ZV7C Caffeine energy gel soon got the blood pumping and I was ready to go.”

“In terms of power I was a good 25 watts off my best, but that was hardly surprising after last week. But the mid week training ride with Simon Smart was a good reminder of what you can achieve if you get the optimal position and the right equipment. And that’s what I applied in to today’s ride.”

It was not just Bottrill who did a good ride. One of Matt’s sponsor’s and regular training partner, Martin Garner from Mg Decor, clocked a new personal best time of 50.38 to take 4th place on the day.

“That was great seeing Martin achieve this result. He’s put a lot of hard work into training and today it paid of. Before the start I said, your going to do a great ride today, and In order for him to achieve this I loaned him a Enve 6.7 front wheel, which brought an instant smile to his face, and the rest his history, a new personal best by 30secs!!
