Tam Gordon, of the Glasgow Nightingale club, was again a clear winner in Caithness Cycling Club’s weekly 10-mile time trial.

A regular visitor, with family connections in Thurso, he clocked 22 min 20 sec on a fine evening with a light southerly wind.

The best conditions are when the outward and return legs take similar times but on this occasion times for the outward leg were around two minutes slower, so not the fastest conditions.

Nevertheless Alistair Miller and Iain Miller both scored PBs – by eight and five seconds respectively – for second and third places and leading points in the Handicap League, where Iain Miller increased his lead over Angus MacKay, with Martine Hughes in third place.

Results: 1 Tam Gordon, 22 min 20 sec; 2 Alistair Miller, 24.53; 3 Iain Miller, 26.49; 4 Alasdair Washington, 27.37; 5 Lorna Stanger, 28.40; 6 Gary Angus, 29.11; 7 Martine Hughes, 33.17.

Handicap League: 1 Iain Miller (45 points); 2 Angus MacKay (38.5); 3 Martine Hughes (33); 4 Gary Angus (28); 5 Alistair Miller (26.5); 6 Lorna Stanger (23).
