The winner of today’s men’s elite time trial at Cadwell Park Alex Dowsett described his win as ‘a slog’, but was very happy to have won the gold.

Dowsett who has now been the time trials over the years four times commented: “The course was very tough today, it was a slog all the way around.

“The descents and climbs were tricky, but not as tough as everyone thought it would have been.

“I am a massive fan of using motor racing circuits such as Cadwell as a venue because they are built for racing, the crowds were out and the view of everyone was great.

“The local support was really nice and to sum up my win in three words, I would have to say that it was a slog, I’m happy and I am really pleased to get the winning jersey back once again.”
