Also riding was Alistair MackIntosh, Nick Yeats and Andy Laing. 

Wee report form Nick Yeats:

Sunny not warm! Derek, Andy L, Alistair Mac and I all raced at track league #4. Derek’s birthday present to Davie U was a win in the 8k scratch race. Early on in the 8k Derek and David Martin escaped for a couple of laps. Just as you thought the race was settling down then David or Scott Macrae would attack again but to no avail. Any ideas I had of thinking I was going OK were shattered by Derek going over the top for another attack. This came to nothing but it wasn’t Derek’s last throw of the dice. The last 5 laps was a bit of a blur for me but what I could see was Derek well in the pack. Bruce Croall did his usual attack from the back but the speed at the front was too hot with Derek crossing in first. Fantastic win by Derek particularly considering how much he put into mid race attacks and against some top trackies.



Still quiet
