Stephen Williamson takes the Scottish 100 Mile TT Championship 2015

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.

It’s two years since Jim Cusick first tipped VeloVeritas off on the fact that there was a top jumps jockey riding bike races in Scotland. Wilson Renwick (RT 23) was the man and in the recent Tour of the Meldons the 37 year-old originally from Hawick but now based in the Highlands won his first Scottish title, the ‘Olympic Time Trial.’ It was his first Scottish medal in only his third Scottish Championship ride; previously he had ridden the ’10’ champs at Bishopton and also contested the ‘Olympic’ TT on one previous occasion.

John Archibald – “a four minute (Pursuit) effort is something I think I could be good at”

Season 2016 saw John Archibald record times of 50:07, 50:04 and 50:03 for 25 mile time trials - so a big goal for him was to dip below the magic 50 minutes. On Sunday past on the rolling dual carriageway between Brechin and Forfar he didn’t just dip inside the 30 miles per hour standard, he left it way behind with a stunning 47 minutes and 57 seconds ride. In the process he took 46 seconds off Graeme Obree’s 1994 record of 48:43; we just had to, ‘have a word.’

Gary Hand – the New Scottish Road Champion 2013

At his ninth attempt, Herbalife-Leisure Lakes Bikes' Gary Hand finally 'done the business' in the Scottish road race championship; timing his move to perfection on the final climb inside seven miles to go and holding off a desperate chase from reigning champion James McCallum (Rapha Condor JLT) and David Lines (MG-Maxifuel Pro Cycling) to win on his own. We caught up with the man who eats the miles - but not much else - on the Monday morning after his win.

Team Endura – Under the Radar; but not for long!

Here at VeloVeritas we felt that those Endura Racing boys would be giving us plenty to write about in 2009, so we thought we'd better sit them down with them and have a few words. As well as Jonathan McBain (owner of Pedal Power Cycles) and a lean and fit looking Gary Hand, a keen as mustard James McCallum was there too; so it turned into a lot of words!
