Andrew “Hamper” MacLeod won Caithness Cycling Club’s weekly 10-mile time trial with a superb 21 min 39 sec, his best this year by two seconds.

Stuart Anderson of Wick Wheelers was a mere 12 seconds behind, while his team-mates Graeme Clyne and Hamish McAllan rode strongly to finish third and fourth.

Angus MacKay and Iain MacLeod scored personal bests, by 43 and 15 seconds respectively, while Roger Broughton took seven seconds off his season’s best.

Steve Fraser, who has been beset by ankle problems, made a welcomed return to racing after a two-year lay-off.

In the Handicap League, Angus MacKay and Iain Miller took maximum points and increased their advantage over their nearest rivals. Miller is still in the lead, 5.5 points ahead of MacKay, but, with four events to go and up to six points per event, this is still a very open competition.

Results: 1 Andrew Macleod, 21 min 39 sec; 2 Stuart Anderson, 21.51; 3 Graeme Clyne, 22.21; 4 Hamish McAllan, 24.09; 5 Colin Earnshaw, 25.22; 6 Iain Miller, 26.34; 7 Angus MacKay, 26.35; 8 Roger Broughton, 27.22; 9 Lorna Stanger, 27.38; 10 Gary Angus, 28.29; 11 Steve Fraser, 32.01; 12 Martine Hughes, 33.01.

Handicap League: 1 Iain Miller (50 points); 2 Angus MacKay (44.5); 3 Martine Hughes (35); 4 Gary Angus (28); 5 Alistair Miller (26.5); 6 Lorna Stanger (24).
