Alistair Miller took top spot in Caithness Cycling Club’s weekly 10-mile time trial on a hard night, with a temperature of only 10 Celsius and a tough southerly wind that resulted in the outward leg taking around four minutes longer than the return.
Miller clocked 26 min 56 sec to finish a minute ahead of Angus MacKay, with Allan Sutherland in third place. In just his second ride Tim Ellis did well to improve by 15 seconds but the maximum points in the Handicap League went to Angus MacKay, followed by Alistair Miller and Phil Cartwright.
Results: 1 Alistair Miller, 26 min 56 sec; 2 Angus MacKay, 27.56; 3 Allan Sutherland, 28.12; 4 Iain Miller, 28.43; 5 Roger Broughton, 28.44; 6 Gary Angus, 29.28; 7 Chris Gregory, 30.28; 8 Phil Cartwright, 31.21; 9 Tim Ellis, 31.29.
