Iain Macleod – Scottish 50 Mile TT Champion 2019

"For an effort of this duration I went with a target power and made sure I didn't overcook it early."

Iain Macleod? Yes, the new Scottish 50 Mile Time Trial Champion from Aberdeen Wheelers; recording 1:45:38 to RT 23 flyer, Alan Thomson’s 1:48:04 and Moray Firth’s James Miller’s 1:48:55.

A surprise?

Not if you remember that in the ‘25’ Championship he was fourth with a 50:12 ride.

VeloVeritas caught up with the man the day after his win.

Congratulations on a fine win, Iain, the basics first please: where are you from, how old are you and what’s your profession?

“I’m 31 and was born and brought up in the Isle of Lewis but I live and work in Aberdeen now as a Naval Architect.”
