UK National 100 mile TT championship
Yorkshire, July 14, 2002
Fourth title for speedy dawson
By Dave Taylor, RTTC Press Officer
Kevin Dawson won his fourth national Road Time Trial Council 100-mile time trial championship in Yorkshire on Sunday when he retained his title after handing out a massive 7.48 beating to runner-up Gethin Butler.
Dawson, winner of the championship in1997, 1999 and 2001, overcame the hot conditions to cover the championship course in 3.34.00 to Butler's 3.41.48.
Joel Wainman, second to Dawson last year, had to settle for third place this time out with 3.48.58.
The team race went to Butler's Preston Wheelers club with backing for Butler coming from John Morgan, who finished fourth with a time of 3.49.06, and Paul Flemming, 11th with 3.56.16.
Three weeks earlier Butler recorded the season's fastest '100' when he turned in a winning 3.32.02 in the Burton and Distict Cycling Association event.
This week Butler admitted he had still to get over that ride. Dawson, a regular road race competitor who mixes his racing with time trials said he had "felt good all day" and was looking forward to riding the Isle of Man International road race on Friday when he joins up with his Compensation Group RT team mates John Tanner and Mark Lovatt.
A last minute change of course was forced on the championship promoters when parts of the road due to be used were coned-off for roadworks. A quick solution was found thanks to a local RTTC official who mapped out an alternative route, although parts of the new route were still being measured as riders started the time trial which also had to be delayed because of fog.
In the women's event 1995 champion Liz Milne (GS Strada-Rudy Project) turned in a winning 4.11.53 ride ahead of defending champion Karen Steele (Caygill Frames RT), 4.17.53, and Marina Bloom (Crawley Wheelers), 4.23.34.
Team honours went to Caygill Frames RT thanks to Steele, Anne Plant (4.29.24) and Heather Thomson (4.34.35).
