Caithness Cycling Club’s weekly 10-mile time trial was held in the windiest conditions for many years and even the fastest riders could manage only a 16 mph average to the turn, but most averaged over 30 mph back to the finish.

The temperature was a mild 15C but with wind speeds from the south-east of 20 to 34 mph this was clearly to be an extremely tough night.

Alistair Miller took first place with a time of 28 min 4 sec, with Colin Earnshaw and Iain Miller not far behind. Gary Angus took maximum points in the Handicap League and now leads with 29, one point ahead of Angus MacKay, followed by Iain Miller (26) and Colin Earnshaw and Alistair Miller, both with 23 points.

Results: 1 Alistair Miller, 28 min 04sec; 2 Colin Earnshaw, 28.21; 3 Iain Miller, 28.33; 4 Roger Broughton, 29.54; 5 Gary Angus, 30.03; 6 Angus MacKay, 30.04; 7 Chris Gregory, 30.38; 8 Julieanne Leslie, 44.20.
