Tri Changing Gear 10ml Time Trial

-

A cold wind tonight for the Tri Changing Gear 10 mile TT wasn’t conducive to fast times and in the circumstances all the guys under 24 mins deserved a wee accollade. Ray Wilson took the win in an excellent 22.40 ahead of Norman Skene and Ali Watt.

Freddie Toms (Elgin CC), on a short holiday in Montrose easily won the Vets (on Std) award.

Handicap prize went to Ythan’s Steve Argo on the one rider one / prize club rule. He was actually pipped by 2 secs by 2nd-equal Ali Watt.

La Vuelta a España 2014 – Stage 18; A Estrada – Monte Castrove en Meis, 173.5 km. Fabio Aru with Froome Calling the Shots

‘Alberto defends lead in spite of heavy bombardment at Monte Castrove en Meis,’ says the Saxo-Tinkoff press release – with Chris Froome the man in charge of the howitzers. Christopher may not be stylish but the man is a bike racer – and that has to be respected. The tactic is simple, when the road goes up and the pace eases back a notch – attack! It nearly netted him the win today but Aru is young, hungry, skinny and pretty quick for a mountain man. But Froome did climb to second on the ‘virtual’ podium and claw back some time on Contador.

United Nations of Awesome. Boombah! Or, as we like to pretend that the Italians say, Opahhh!

A great result for the team, and a super performance by the team.
