If you’re like us, you thought the Scottish Road Race Championships at Kennoway in Fife over much of the old Dave Campbell Memorial Race parcours would be pretty much a formality for ‘10’ and ‘25’ mile time trial Champion, John Archibald (Pro Vision).
Especially in the absence of multiple former champion, Highlander, Evan Oliphant.
But massed starts aren’t time tests where the strongest man always wins; and whilst the man who can ride 25 miles in 46 minutes was on the podium – it wasn’t the top step.
The best view from the podium went to Mark Robertson (Army CC); the man who’s based in the north east of England beat Fraser Martin (Raleigh) into silver and aforementioned John Archibald into bronze.
Best ‘have a word’ with Mr. Robertson we decided…
