Caithness Cycling Club’s weekly 10-mile time trial again had to contend with a strong headwind on the predominantly uphill outward leg. But Wick visitor Stuart Anderson made light of it, averaging 22.4mph, followed by a wind-assisted 33.2 mph return to clock an impressive 22 min 1 sec overall.

Second-placed Iain Miller did well to be just six seconds over his season’s best, while Chris Gregory had a great ride to score a personal best by 34 seconds and gain the maximum of six points in the Handicap League.

Phil Cartwright took five points with his best this year.

The unluckiest rider was Julieanne Leslie, who lost a lot of time through gear problems.

Results: 1 Stuart Anderson, 22 min 01 sec; 2 Iain Miller, 27.04; 3 Angus MacKay, 28.08; 4 Gary Angus, 28.41; 5 Roger Broughton, 29.11; 6 Chris Gregory, 29.16; 7 Phil Cartwright, 30.49; 8 Julieanne Leslie, 40.04.
