Sporting a 58 chainring on a fast course where over eight miles of the ten to be raced were on a dual carriageway, Matt Bottril made use of his hardest training week ever to beat An Post pro Ryan Mullen by just two seconds.

With over 80 riders under 20 minutes, the speed of the course with a tailwind to the turn was easy to see and the top six riders covered by 25 seconds. Not only did Matt set a new championship record with 17.40, he led his team to a comp record for the 10 mile distance. There were lots of happy faces afterwards even if they didn’t win a medal. In the Bioracer speedsuit, Russell Hampton rode a PB, joining the ’17’ club without having done an 18 before!


Three time an Irish champion in 2014, Ryan Mullen was two seconds off being the British 10 champion!

Pushing a huge gear as he passed me, Matt withstood the pressure of beating the likes of Mullen to add to the 25 and 50 championship, and ride the second fastest 10 as well.

Matt won the race with the second fastest time for the 10 (Alex Dowsett holds the record) and it was a PB by over 40 seconds. “This course is renowned for fast times and whilst I’m not a fan of these type of courses, I’ll do them.”

“This has been the hardest championship to win because Ryan, he’s a professional rider and has pushed me harder than anyone”.

After the 25, I was thinking I’d had enough. I’d won the 50, and then the 25 but I was like it would be great to win the 10and then when Ryan did that 17 (on a local course to him in North Wales), training wise I went into over drive. This is the hardest I have trained for all the championships. I so wanted to do it.”

“So the day after the 25 champs, I was like saying to myself, ‘you have got to get it together now’.”

This last few weeks, I have done nothing but interval training and it killed me but it’s paid off.”

“I have used the 58 chain ring before and knew my cadence was not as good as it used to be so I knew on this course to go the speed I’d need to go, that I’d need the bigger gear. I can’t spin like I used to be able to and the lower cadence seems to work better for me.”

“Going out with the tailwind, the gear was perfect and I was on top of it all the time. I was doing 36 mph and I was thinking this is pretty scary even though it is nice going that fast. Over the last few miles though I was on the rivet. I got it all out and I am well pleased.”

“I have had an amazing season and I could stop now! But I’m not going to. This has been the best season I have ever had and I know it’s going to be hard to repeat this because I know how hard I have had to work. You have to commit so much to it and I don’t know I’ll ever top this.”

Asked about the comp record for the team, Matt explained “We knew it was on the cards going into this because the guys are going so well. I coach Dan (Barnett) so I knew he was coming into this going well. I said to him he’d do 18.59 and he did 19!”
