GS Corsa Spring Bunny 25 mile Time Trial

The GS Corsa Spring Bunny 25 race start was delayed as there had been an accident on the course, however once underway it ran smoothly. The course was the AB25/4 – Garlogie Torphins.

Alas, the recent lovely weather came to an end today, and instead the 32 competitors were faced with a wet, breezy and cold afternoon.

The rain started just after the last man was off, and continued throughout the race, which inspite of the conditions saw several excellent performances. At least it cleared up a little for the presentation.

One highlight of the race was Christine Mclean (Shetland Wheelers), who did a stormer, beating her personal best by over 6 minutes! Christine ended up fastest lady, 1st handicap and 14th overall.

As she said, the conditions were just like home – “Dreich!”.

To quote Carlos Riise (a master of understatement), “Not a nice day for it.”

Originally from Dalgety Bay in Fife, Craig was a long-time member and stalwart of the Dunfermline Cycling Club and enjoyed a stellar cycling career.
