Gemma Frost and Graham Crammond battled the testing conditions to emerge victorious in the Gosforth CC 25 in Northumberland on Sunday.

Crammond returned from his regular triathlon involvement to capture his maiden open time-trialling win.

Apologies were rife because of the conditions and quite a few of those who chose to tackle the course came off.

A regular triathlete, Crammond kept his cool though to find himself on the top of the podium for the first time thanks to a time of 57-11.

Gemma Frost

“Make no doubt about it, that was a tough one and I was very surprised to be the quickest today.  I would go as far to say it was probably the hardest second half of a 25 I’ve ever done,” he said.

“I raced the Barcelona 70.3 triathlon last week and won my age category, so I knew I was going well, but wasn’t sure if my legs had recovered enough for today – it didn’t actually feel great, but when you’re on the limit, it never does!” Crammond continued.

Lewis Timmins (Team Swift) and Harry Walker (Revolver Racing) made it through unscathed and couldn’t be separated, sharing second spot with times of 57-28.

Gemma Frost (Team Swift) has done her fair share on travelling on the continent akin to men’s winner Crammond, coming back to win the women’s category in Northumberland.

Daniel Dixon

“Today was really testing in the wind, but my laps were pretty consistent so I was happy with how I judged my efforts,” she said. “My legs are still tired from a half ironman event in Lisbon last week, so if I’m being honest I wasn’t expecting much today, so it’s fair to say I’m pretty pleased with the result.”

Frost clocked a time of 1-03-45 to end the day as winner by a considerable distance – her second victory in four races this year.

Carrie Brookes (Blaydon CC) was second in 1-09-09 while Jen McMahon (Muckle CC) was another 12 seconds behind Brookes in 1-09-21 for third.

Daniel Dixon (Gosforth RC) was one of only eight riders under the hour mark and fastest junior in 58-02 while Phil Hall (Breeze Bikes RT) took home the quickest veterans prize in 57-50.

Elsewhere, Jonathan Bayley (Reifen Racing) and Rachel Galler (Blaydon CC) were quickest man and woman on road bikes.
