Matt Bottrill (Drag2Zero) kicked off his 2015 season pretty much as he left off last year: with a victory and a new course record at the Kettering CC hilly 20-mile time trial in Northamptonshire on Sunday.

Current triple national champion Bottrill posted a time of 41 minutes and 52 seconds under sunny skies to create a new record for the course. Second-placed Andy Jackson (Team Swift) came in with 43-30, one minute and 38 seconds adrift of Bottrill.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
