“Rising Westerly” 100 Mile Time Trial 2006

-

The results of the “Rising Westerly” 100 Mile Time Trial held on the Aberdeen / Stonehaven / Deeside course, and organised by GS Corsa.

Carlos Riise (Shetland Wheelers) made another successful “air—raid” on mainland cycling by comfortably winning the “Rising Westerly” by over 14 minutes from Granite City RT’s Norman Skene.

Sadly, Scottish 12hr Champion, Joe Wilson (Sandy Wallace Cycles) crashed at Aboyne and was forced to retire. Carlos reported that Joe was probably just over a minute up on him at the time.

In third place was Deeside Thistle/Bikelife’s Phil Brown.

Norman Skene (Granite City) took the veterans’ award with a 67min 37secs better than his age standard.

Ian Brodie (Deeside Thistle/Bikelife) was delighted to take the handicap award with a net time of 3.35.35 (Scratch time 4.39.52, a personal best).

Welcome to the New VeloVeritas Design!

find it hard to believe, but VeloVeritas is three years old today, and so to celebrate, I've carried out a complete overhaul of the site over the last number of months, bringing the design more up-to-date, and changing the layout to make it much easier for you to find the articles you're looking for, or discover something of interest whilst you're just browsing. Welcome to the new VeloVeritas Design! For us though, one of the biggest things is that we're now able to update the site from wherever in the world we happen to be - which means you'll be reading the same timely updates that we've always tried to deliver, but we will be much less fraught in bringing them to you!
