Allan Bell Weekend Dyke APR

The final event of three promoted over the weekend by Forres CC, with Ythan's Tony French putting in a great weekends work to claim 3rd Overall amongst the riders who rode all three events. This years APR saw an extra lap added but with the same time gaps as last year, when it was only 3 laps, so an early catch by the scratch group was always going to happen. I was in the same group, group 3 of 5 as Tony and our group worked ok for the majority of the 1 and 3/4 laps before we were caught by Group 4 containing a few Moray Firth boys who slowed things right down knowing full well that their main riders would be joining them shortly. Just after the left turn at Brodie and the scratch group came screaming past but Tony and myself got on and I managed to get to the front of the group to get over the short rise through Dyke but the RAF riders put in a few digs on the headwind bends and with the increase in speed I had nothing left having put my share plus a few double turns in during the first 16 miles. I chased on with one of the Forres riders and kept the bunch in sight until the left bend near Kintessack by which time I could see the bunch splintering into the headwind with Tony dropping back at that point. 4th race this year with a grand total of 50 miles raced before today so not too disappointed and the training goal achieved of getting a hard race under my belt before the 25 Champs next week.

Ythan Road Race winner Michael Henderson won, no surprise given his form and the strong presence of MFCC riders. Would love to do the whole weekend one year as the Forres members put on some of the best events in the country.
