Newly-crowned National 100 and 12-hour champion Adam Wild (GS Metro) took individual and team honours in the Burton & District CA 100, while Jackie Field (CC Ashwell) won the women’s event.
Wild, aged 23, went over 11 minutes quicker than he did in last month’s National 100 clocking a winning time of three hours, 17 minutes and one second and led his GS Metro team to a provisional team competition record.
The A100/4 course saw riders complete four laps of an out and back 25-mile course along the A50 between Derby and Uttoxeter.
A strong headwind greeted riders on the outward leg heading west away from Derby before riders enjoyed a tailwind on the return leg back from Uttoxeter.
Wild last raced at the 12-hour National Championships two weeks earlier and showed his form once again to take a comfortable win by over five minutes over the Staffordshire/Derbyshire border.
A close battle for second saw Wild’s GS Metro team-mate Carl Donaldson clock 3-22-46 edging Thomas Hutchinson (Team Bottrill) into third by 19 seconds.
Team GS Metro consisting of Adam Wild, Carl Donaldson and Andrew Scorey won the team event in a provisional competition record of 10-12-10.
“It was fairly windy on that road but I was never going that slowly,” said Wild.
“It was actually less tough than I thought it was going to be. I was nearly 12 minutes faster than in the National 100 but that was definitely the course.
“I haven’t felt quite right after the National 12-hour and it was only on the Friday before this weekend’s event I started to feel normal.
“I haven’t really trained much since the 12 hour and it took a bit of getting my head around it. But I had a good ride this weekend and it felt good to win.”
In the women’s event Field, who had also ridden to victory over the shorter East Anglian VTTA 10 two weeks earlier, was again victor over the much longer distance clocking 3-59-37, beating Naomi Shinkins (Bournemouth Cycleworks) into second (4-11-19).
