Gordon Arms Mountain Time Trial 2010


Alan Thomson (Glasgow Couriers) was run pretty close by his teammate Barry McGurk for the win in the Gordon Arms Mountain Time Trial, a hilly time trial run by the Gala CC near Melrose in the Scottish borders. With Euan Pope backing them up in fourth place, the team prize was never going anywhere else.

A wet and windy day gave way to pleasant (but still chilly) sunshine as the morning progressed, although a 20 mile course with six tough miles of climbing – the first 3.8 of them immediately after the start – and strewn with gravel, cattle grids and potholes remained a challenge for a lot of riders. Nevertheless, many riders bared their legs and put on their best wheels for this early season lung-opener.
