Caithness Cycling Club’s weekly 10-mile time trial was another tough one with a 14 mph headwind on the predominantly uphill leg to the turn. However, Colin Earnshaw showed that he is getting back to form, clocking 26 minutes exactly for first place, almost a minute ahead of runner-up Angus MacKay.

Phil Cartwright also made light of the conditions for a season’s best by a massive 64 seconds, while newcomer Charles Dusse came close to the 30-minute barrier in his first time trial. Iain Miller was unfortunate to suffer badly from cramp and limped home well down on expectations.

Angus MacKay now heads the Handicap League with 31 points, from Phil Cartwright (19) and Gary Angus (18).

Results: 1 Colin Earnshaw, 26 min; 2 Angus MacKay, 26.54; 3 Kenny MacGruer, 27.15; 4 Dave Stockan, 27.21; 5 Roger Broughton, 28.04; 6eq Gary Angus, Alasdair Washington, 28.19; 8 Iain Miller, 29.43; 9 Phil Cartwright, 29.45; 10 Charles Dusse, 30.35.
