Adam Wild and Joanne Rea topped the podium at the Tyneside Vagabonds CC 100-mile time trial that took place near Pegswood in Northumberland on Sunday morning.
Wild (GS Metro) broke his own course record that he set in 2017 as he powered his way to victory in a time of 3-34-25.
“It was a good day out. I love that 100 course because there’s so much going on and although it was windy, a lot of it was cross-tailwind,” said Wild.
“It was my first ever 100 in 2017 and I used to train on those roads all the time after school when I was a junior, so I think I’ll always have fond memories of it. It’s nice to have been able to have a proper go at setting a good course record on it today.”
The GS Metro rider recently finish third at the National 25-mile Championship and also finished second at the National 100-mile Championship at the beginning of July.
Wild will be hoping his excellent form continues and he can finish the open season in strong fashion.
Joanne Rea (Blaydon CC) topped the podium in the women’s event after finishing her run with a time of 4-41-29 respectively.
“I’m pleased to retain the N&DCA 100 Champs ladies title, but I had hoped for a bigger PB,” said Rea.
“Unfortunately I had some technical difficulties with my power meter on the first lap which threw me off a bit and as it was quite blustery, I had to be careful when riding adjacent to farm gateways.”
“All things considered, I’m happy with the five minute PB but even happier that the TT bike now goes back in the cupboard – that’s my season done.”
Tom Rigby (Croton Velo) finished second on the podium after clocking a time of 3-58-03.
Daniel McParland (Tri Preston) was the man to finish in third with a time of 4-01-05 respectively.
The fastest Vet on Standard was David Robinson of host club Tyneside Vagabonds CC (+45:05) – his ride time was 4-16-07.
The fastest V40 was Collin Humphrey of Team Kirkley Cycles – Collin was also the fastest rider on a road bike today.
The prize for fastest V50 went to Phil Kennell of GS Metro who, despite having a puncture, managed to get going again to finish a very credible 12th overall.
In the team competition the Derwentside CC trio of Jay Pitt, Michael Todd and Scott McCance were first, and in second place was Tyneside Vagabonds CC (David Robinson, Roger Clarke and Martin Rasmussen).
