There were some excellent times and two personal bests in Caithness Cycling Club’s penultimate weekly 10-mile time trial, held on a mild evening with a 10 mph west wind.

The winner Andrew “Hamper” MacLeod scorched round to take four seconds off his season’s best with a fine 21 min 35 sec, while former club member and former Scottish team rider Gary Paterson clocked an excellent 22 min 36 sec for second place and visitor Danny Miller (Wick Wheelers) took a fine third.

Roger Broughton continued with his recent improvements to slice 25 seconds off his time for a personal best, while 18-year-old Rory Simmons was on good form to score a PB by 19 seconds and sister Jessica – who hasn’t raced for two years – made it a family night by taking 29 seconds from her 2019 best.

In the Handicap League Iain Miller and Angus MacKay have 56 and 49.5 points respectively and are assured of the gold and silver medals but the battle for the bronze continues. Martine Hughes is in third place with 35 points but, with up to six points available, Roger Broughton (31) and Alistair Miller (30) are still in contention.

Results: 1 Andrew MacLeod, 21 min 35 sec; 2 Gary Paterson, 22.36; 3 Danny Miller (WW), 23.43; 4 Alistair Miller, 24.52; 5 Colin Earnshaw, 24.56; 6 Iain Miller, 25.25; 7 George Ewing (WW), 25.32; 8 Angus MacKay, 26.29; 9 Roger Broughton, 26.42; 10 Lorna Stanger, 27.37; 11 Gary Angus, 28.52; 12 Rory Simmons, 30.34; 13 Jessica Simmons, 32.43; 14 Martine Hughes, 33.10.
