David Duggan, I know that name, wasn’t he the guy that Dave and I watched win that Dunfermline ‘mud fest’ cyclo-cross the other year?
That’s him – and now he’s gone and won the Scottish Road Race Championship on that tough old course up in the North East which included five ascents of Suie Hill on one of those rare days in Scotland where the sun beats down on the riders, making hydration even more important than usual.
After the race Duggan spoke to his sponsors website;
“I’m pretty delighted to be honest.
“It’s been a goal of mine for a long time, but I knew it would be very difficult to achieve, and I was never that sure I was going to achieve it.
“It was draining from every aspect, the heat and trying to get enough fluids on board, and eat enough food so I was always on the back foot trying to stay fuelled with it being such a long race.”
We thought we better find out a little more about this ‘DD’ fellow…
