It was very different indeed to the previous week which had to be cancelled at late notice due to significant snow on the roads.

The 15 miles to Mount Pleasant and back saw a significant number of personal bests, 12 to be precise, which is possibly a club night race record.

Even the fast guys were in on that action with Andrew Scorey taking the win in 34:18 and Andrew Waring second in 35:09,

Doug Robertson placed third in 37:12. Ride of the night came from Ian Forsyth who set his third PB in a row with an excellent 43:40

Racing continued into the weekend with the two Andrew’s in road race action,

Andrew Waring came out a bit disappointed with his result on Saturday but he was up against a strong level of higher 2nd category racers.

Andrew Scorey faired better, putting himself in some big breakaways, racing against some Elite and many fellow 1st cats and finally coming out of the very competitive field within the first 20 placings.

Last mention goes to Dom Blythe and Doug Slater who raced in the Scottish National 10 mile time trial championship near Dundee,

Dom posted a good 23:30 and Doug a solid 24:03 for their best rides of the year so far.

This week’s club race is a big step up to 25 miles - riders meet on Thursday at Hutton crossroads, 6.30 for a 7pm start.
