Courtesy of the Legend of North East Cycling that is Ms. Isobel Smith, here’s the lowdown on the 2015 Scottish 100 Mile Championship.

We hope to carry an interview with winner, Stephen Williamson, soon.

Over to the lady…

Right!

Here are the results with a wee preamble.

At the start it was dry, bright and a fair breezy – which in Norman Skene’s words later became a f……. gale!

In fact a lovely sunny morning; T-shirt weather.

As predicted Jon Entwhistle charged into an early lead at 18 miles and was two seconds up on Stephen Williamson – the raider from oe’r the Border – and 11 seconds up on reigning champion Callum Finlayson.

At the second check at about 45 miles and he was still in the lead but Callum was now in second place just 10 seconds adrift with Williamson 13 seconds down on the Moray Firth man.

With approximately 25 miles to go Williamson had steamed into the lead 2min.39 sec in front of Jon with Callum beginning to show signs of suffering, nearly another minute in arrears.

With six miles to go it was all done bar the shouting; Williamson was looking strong and had increased his lead to 3.39 over the Deeside rider with last year’s winner now having to settle for bronze.

The times will show how hard it was.
