Adam Wild

Adam Wild set a new course record on his way to victory in the Sunderland Clarion 25 on Sunday, while Gemma Frost was the fastest female in the event near Ponteland which incorporated the Northumberland and Durham CA Championships.

Wild led a one-two for GS Metro, clocking 52-07 to shave 34 seconds from the previous course record and take the win by 59 seconds from team-mate Danny Grieves, while espoir Zeb Kyffin (Ribble Pro Cycling) took third spot.

Frost (Team Swift) clocked 1-00-46 to win the women’s prize by 3-40 from Joanne Rea (Blaydon CC).

It was a warm day for the championship event, and early riders were treated to relatively quiet roads. It got busy towards the tail end of the field, but conditions stayed ideal with warm, dry and slightly overcast conditions.

In other categories, Collin Humphrey (Derwentside CC) was the fastest rider on a road bike, clocking 55-51 for 11th overall, while Ronnie Thompson (Derwentside CC) was top over-70/80 veteran with 1-18-15 after recently turning 80 years old.

In-form Thomas Prentice was a non-finisher due to a mechanical, although GS Metro still took the team prize with Wild and Grieves being joined by Ben Lane in the winning trio.

Another rider in great form, Team Bottrill’s Adam Jarps was fastest junior.

Wild has improved greatly over the last 12 months. His previous best time for the M254 course set in July last year was 54-23, more than two minutes slower.

The M254 course uses the A696, starting just north of Newcastle airport and heading north west, turning at Kirkwhelpington and heading back down.

For 21-year-old Wild, the victory is the latest in a string of good results. He secured ninth in the National Circuit Championships earlier this month, having won the Cramlington CC 10 and Tyneside Vagabonds 40.3-mile test in May.

And Frost’s win was open victory number six, the 35-year-old from Consett having been fastest female in the Blaydon CC 18 and Alnwick CC 13 earlier this month, as well as winning the Derwentside CC 9.9, the Houghton CC 10 and the North Tyneside Riders 27.
