TT hills test

Eleven riders from Walkers CC battled the hills and potholes of the 5.75-mile Dundonald Hill-Corraith circular last week in the latest round of the club confined TT series, writes Alan Woodison.

With a few debutants among the line-up and some riders on unfamiliar terrain the timesheets, and the overall points table, were turned on their heads.

In the event, Scott Kerr on his home patch showed everyone a clean pair of wheels from Alan Gaskin.

Times: Scott Kerr 17:37, Alan Gaskin 17:49, Calum Ridout 18:08, Brian McCutcheon 19:02, Frazer Bell 19:08, Jim Goldie 19:16, Lorna Todd 19:24, Davie Robb 19:58, Harry McGarvie 20:00, Bill Gerrie 20:56, Cammy McGarvie 23:03.

At the halfway point Brian McCutcheon, Lorna Todd and Davie Robb are at the top of the table, split by the smallest of margins. Jim Goldie looks in the strongest position being a few points behind but with only two races to his name.

Points: Brian McCutcheon 106, Lorna Todd 103, Davie Robb 102, Alan Gaskin 99, Jim Goldie 95, Lorna Sloan 80, Calum Ridout 70, Frazer Bell 49, Bryce Gillan 44, Harry McGarvie 40, Sandy Muir 26, Scott Kerr 26, Ian Anderson  24, Davie Baird 24, Bill Gerrie       24, Chris Hardie 22, Simon Porter 22, Kevin Gebbie 20, Cammy McGarvie  20.

Next up is a long test over the 16 miles of the course used for the British Time Trial Championships from Chapeltoun and into Stewarton on June 7.
