Results for Wed 15th Aug. The Podium was Alan Dean (21:09), Alan Shearer - Velocity 44 (22:54), and Graham Jones (22:59). Louise Smith was 1st Lady in 27:32.

Good to see not one but 2 Youth Riders - Alfie Atherton & Archie Ellen. Archie did the ride of the night: having somehow forgotten that shoes come in pairs, he ended up riding in one cycling shoe and one trainer. Specialist equipment choice or just plain kit fail? #BlameDad

Volunteer Watch: thanks to Alan Burke & David Lewenden for helping out once again. We need a Timekeeper next week and 2 volunteers on the 29th which will be the last night.

Is the final one next week?

Easy. Just need a flat calm, resurfaced road and an electric motor.

SC East & Central Women's Development Series - Final Placings

Beth Harley-Jepson takes bronze in Seniors and Estelle Fuller gold in Juniors.SC East & Central Women's Development Series - Final Placings

Well done to all the participants in the Women's series this year. The series was open to Cat 2/3/4 riders from all regions and medals are awarded in the Senior, Veteran, U23 and Junior age categories. The final race of the series was the Pedal Power Road Race.

In the Senior category Jo Thom (Sandy Wallace Cycles) took the title with a very consistent performance throughout the whole season - a very worthy winner. Silver medalist Lulu Tucker (Ronde CC) also scored well from first to last race and both were some distance from the fast finishing Beth Harley-Jepson (Edinburg RC) in bronze medal position.

In the Vets (over 40) category Karolyn Brown (Velocity 44) took the top spot and also deserves a special mention as the only rider to have 6 counting results. Kirsteen Ellis (Synergy Cycles) finished in silver medal position with Diana Farrell (Hervelo Cycling) in the final podium position. Great to see Kirsteen and Diana winning medals as they are both great proponents of women's cycle sport in Scotland.

Gemma Penman (Glasgow CT) won the Gold medal in the U23 category - well in front of Beth Macrae (Fullarton Wheelers) in second and Rhona Callander (Team Breeze) in third.

In the Juniors it was tight at the top, with Estelle Fuller (Edinburgh RC) taking the gold with her placing in the last round of the series. Lauren Liversidge (Deeside Thistle) takes the silver medal and Abbey Stewart (Team 22) wins the bronze.

All the medal winners will be invited to a social/presentation night in the Autumn - watch the FB page for details.

As usual all feedback is welcome.
