Fife CA 10 TT 27/05/12 – Results

Lovely warm sunny morning across in Ffe on the Freuchie 10 course.  Nice to race in the warmth for a change and I think this is my favourite 10 course, despite the various turns and rises – I like it:)  Another impressive ride from Rab Carson and I think that’s the 2nd 20 min 10 he’s produced on that course this year.  Next outing for me will be West Lothian Clarion’s 10 at Cambusbarron next Sunday 3rd June. 1 Robert Carson … Continue reading
