Border Trophy 10′s 18th and 20th June – Kelso and Gala

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

Glasgow Couriers 10 TT 29/04/12

Bitterly cold Sunday morning with strong north east wind meant a hard return leg on the A78 Eglinton 10 course.  It was fairly quick to the turn but you just knew it was going to be hard  on the way back.  The fast guys were all down about a minute on recent times but a big field turned out.  Just Dougie from Musselburgh and Paul Anderson  Gala CC from our side of the country though.  Long way to go for a … Continue reading


Sadly we have had to cancel the British Eagle Road Race on Saturday 28th April. Roadworks have appeared on the course at the 11th hour and despite frantic last minute efforts and negotiations they are too significant to do anything about. This decision has been taken in consultation with the Commissaire as we are unable to guarantee rider safety or come up with a safe viable alternative. We are currently trying to contact all riders and volunteers and we will … Continue reading
