Musselburgh 3up Team Time Trial 09/03/13

A bitterly cold east wind, wet roads, mud and potholes greeted the 27 teams in this years MRCC Team Trial Trial around East Saltoun and Bolton. Thankfully the snow stayed away. Quickest team round the 24 miles were Drew Sharkey, Craig Dale and Dave Caesar one of two teams riding. Their winning time of 1:00:18 showing how tough a day it was – but it is only March after all! Thanks to Dave Urquhart and his team of marshals … Continue reading

The revived Border Trophy TT series took place on Monday 18th and Wednesday 20th June at Kelso and Galashiels respectively.  These are open events but times count towards the Border Trophy between the Kelso and Gala clubs.  They are hoping to extend the events to include other Border clubs and keep them as open events as well.  The kelso course was from Kelso to a dead turn at the far end of Birgham and return to Kelso.  23:41 for me … Continue reading

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

SVTTA 10 TT – Cambusbarron 20/05/12

With the cancellation of our 10 on Saturday I was thankfull for a ride in the SVTTA 10 at Cambusbarron on Sunday.  Left the east in sunshine with it warming up a bit but at Cambusbarron it was overcast and 4 degrees.  This is always a fairly tough course on a relatively calm day but the cold made it harder to get going.  Sticky both ways and ended up with a 24:00 dead.  Didn’t hang around for the results as … Continue reading
