It was another very cold evening for Caithness Cycling Club’s weekly 10-mile time trial, with a temperature of just eight Celsius and a brisk north wind of over 20 mph.

As a result everyone was well behind their best times this season but Roger Broughton and Alistair Miller came closest at 31 and 43 seconds down respectively, so taking top points in the Handicap League.

Alistair Miller continues to lead this with 35 points, followed by Roger Broughton (25) and Martine Hughes (22).

In a close battle for first place Stuart Swanson edged out Alistair Miller by a single second, with Iain Miller a further 41 seconds down in third place.

Times: 1 Stuart Swanson, 26 min 15 sec; 2 Alistair Miller, 26.16; 3 Iain Miller, 26.57; 4 Roger Broughton, 28.18; 5 Angus Mackay, 29.07; 6, Alasdair Washington, 29.59.

Wick Wheelers’ latest time trial saw a complete reversal of wind direction from the previous week. Riders had a helping wind on the outward leg before turning to face the elements.

Consequently times were slower but Danny Miller was over three minutes quicker than his nearest rival.

Times: 1 Danny Miller, 24 min 48 sec; 2 Iain Miller, 28.03; 3 Charlie Mackay, 30.28; 4 James Munro, 31.05; 5 Lisa Coghill, 33.55.
