Iain Macleod – 3:28:33; the fastest 100 mile time trial ever ridden on Scottish roads

-

It was 2019 when we last spoke to Iain Macleod – he was with Aberdeen Wheelers then but is now with Kelpie Racing – he’d just won the SC 50 mile championships and the man is making the headlines again; a couple of weeks ago he took the Scottish Cycling Olympic Time Trial title and before that recorded the fastest 100 mile time trial ever ridden on Scottish roads.

I can’t say ‘Scottish Record’ because the race wasn’t held under the auspices of Scottish Cycling, rather in a Cycling Time Trials event – surely it’s time for the two bodies to sit down and agree common ground on this issue? 

But irrespective of that, it was a great ride by Mr. Macleod; here’s what he had to say to VeloVeritas a day or two after his crazy fast ride of 3:28:33. I can remember winning 100 mile time trials ‘back in the day’ with rides an HOUR slower than that…
