(Sorry for delay in posting / it was my daughter’s wedding on Friday and been very busy. Also sorry the table format has gone a bit crazy and will be sorted later. The missing names are Glenn Cobain 3rd place and Stephen Farr 8th place. This will be corrected later also).

Congratulations to Gary McCullough on wining the 4-up sprint from 3mins 30secs in the scratch group. Gary McClune (also scratch) was a close second with +50 Vet Glenn Cobain a close third, and young Johnnie McAuley in the mix with a superb fourth place. Steven Stewart was next home 19 seconds down. Meta and Duncan were next at 52 seconds behind. Stephen Farr in his first race this season due to a Knee injury from Skiing was 8th at 1.35 down. My apologies to Stephen Millar for miss handicapping the big man into the scratch group / he is just right to request Ronnie comes back soon to do the handicap! Just a bit of banter! He ended up on his own after falling behind on the Bellahill climb on lap 2 of 4. Fair play to Stephen he kept going and finished 2.30 down in 9th place. Young Kellen was next home with a strong ride only 3 minutes down. The handicapping was 2 groups, 8 riders in the first group and 3 in the scratch. David Brannigan dropped out on lap 4 after hanging in well for so long.

Well done to one and all for having a bash, and many thanks to all the Marshals. DR.
