Massie Shield 25m TT 28/04/2013

Postby Andy D » Sun Apr 28, 2013 1:55 pm

So, who's stupid idea was it to replace the Ythan Hilly 20 with this 25mile TT on the Ellon - New Deer course.....MINE!! :x

It was brutally windy, still brutally lumpy but at least it wasn't brutally raining. Small mercies on a day when tacking into the wind like Ben Ainslie or some other sea-faring cove was the order of the day, when cross winds threatened to send riders into the Barrons at Auchnagatt or worse. Plenty Ythan representation but none could compete with the fast-lads from the Wheelers, GCRT and the odd Deesider, I'm afraid, meaning the Massie Shield will not have any sky blue ribbons attached any time soon.

The Aberdeen Wheelers numbers have been boosted lately by newbie racers and some experienced ones too, notably former Ythan man Lee Smith who was 2nd on the day with a magnificent 57.38, which along with Brendan McCabe's 59.29 and 25 mile TT debutante, Joe Nicolson's 1.00.08 was enough to snatch the Shield from Granite City, who's Spalding, Skene and Duncan ran the Wheelers very close but just couldn't tally up a quick enough trio of times.

Bob Brown's frankly outrageous winning time of 56.14 was obviously the ride of the day.Good to see Lewis Goodlad and Craig Ward holding up the Ythan end in the Youths and Juniors ranks, they must have suffered something rotten in those strong winds.

Also nice to see Christine McLean in action too, posting a decent time despite some mechanical mishaps before the start.

Post race update to Christine Mclean's time.
Christine actually posted a 1:01:59 after the post race checking. So she is still the fastest lady but a whole minute faster!

Just looked at the return leg on Strava, Bill James and I all posted the same average speed for the return leg 24.8mph. I would have sworn it was faster as I seemed to be in the 30s a lot of the time but i suppose the two hilly and windy bits must have damaged the average.
May I remind you of that scene
