Strong crosswinds made for challenging conditions at the Barnesbury CC 25-mile time trial in Northumberland on Sunday, where victory went to Adam Wild (GS Metro) and Gemma Frost (Team Swift).

The M2510 course, which runs parallel to the coast road, had some challenging exposed sections with the westerly winds making the going hard.

Wild clocked 50-41 to lift the Johnny Rankin Trophy, one of 35 riders to go under the hour. He was 23 seconds quicker than runner-up Keith Murray (Drag2zero) while Dan Meggison (GS Metro) was third, a further 44 seconds off the pace.

Gemma Frost (Team Swift) was quickest woman in 59-16, with Joanne Rea (Blaydon CC) second and Gemma Hutchins (Blaydon CC) third.

"I'm delighted to win the Johnny Rankin trophy having ridden the prestigious event for the past few years,” said Wild. “It was a hard day on the spine road, particularly on the return leg South as the wind was a lot stronger than I expected. I shouldn't grumble however as it was warm and sunny.

“Keith (Murray) is always a formidable competitor, especially at the Johnny Rankin 25, and never fails to push me all the way to the line.”

The event was sponsored by Scott Sports UK for the second year in succession. 

Special mention must go to GS Metro over-60 rider Mick Bradshaw who completed the course in 1:05:10. Mick had a heart transplant in December 2014 after literally burning his old one out through racing his bike. 

Speaking after the race Mick said: “Well, I was ripping along the course today and it felt really good! Typically, I got stopped on the middle roundabout twice. Otherwise, I would have posted an even quicker time.

“I’ve had a bit of a disjointed training week leading up to the race, but it came together out on the course today it’s nice to be back in the money again – no more pea sandwiches for a while!!”

In other categories, the highest placed Barnesbury CC rider was Dean Madden (59:48).
