Ali Watt (Granite City RT) broke his own Course Record on the 2 lap 19.5ml Deeside Thistle Hilly 10.5 Mile Time Trial on Thurs 24th May, only to be thwarted by a flying Ray Wilson (Dunfermline CC) who was over a half minute faster.
A cool, dull evening with intermittent showers meant that Course Records weren’t really on most folks’ cards beforehand.
As well as a tremendous sporting evening, it was a social success as well, with Deeside Thistle’s Hatton of Fintray contingent providing a sumptuous bun fight in the village hall afterwards, which provided a nice conclusion to an aul’ fashioned kind of race night.
