There was a really big battle taking place with Brett Harwood (Terry Wright Cycles RT) 49.25, Richard Bideau (Pendle Forest) 49.32 & Matt Sinclair (Lutterworth Cycle Centre RT) 49.38 all getting under the magic 50.

With the final riders all home, this just left the way for Matthew Bottrill of Bottrill did not disappointand covered the course in a time of 47:28, for win number 7 of 2015 and the fastest 25mile time set in the Uk so far this season.

Bottrill commented on his ride saying “It was windy out there today and I basically road to the turn like it was a 10 mile time trial, then did what I could on the return leg. The last 10 miles I covered in 16:44 which is 35.9mph. So all in all I’m very happy with the progress being made”.
