Kyle Gordon (RT23) and Natalie Stevenson (Glasgow Ivy CC) enjoyed success as fastest male and fastest female respectively at the Ryan’s Bike Surgery 12.2-mile time trial in Kinross, Scotland, on Saturday afternoon.
It was the inaugural Sandy Wallace Memorial Trophy time trial, a fitting tribute to the Scottish cycling stalwart and legend.
The first winner of the trophy was Kyle Gordon who finished top of the leaderboard in a course record time of 24-55, almost two minutes ahead of Ciaran McSherry (Edinburgh Road Club) who clocked 26-36, with Hamish Creber third for the promoting club in 27-34.
Stevenson finished in 30-10 to take the honours in the women’s race, ahead of the 31-04 set by Vanelli-Project GO’s Alexandra Hayden, while the podium was completed by Beth MacRae (Ayr Roads CC) in 31-58.
In the road bike category victory went to Ray Wilson (Ryan’s Bike Surgery) while Sandy Wallace’s son John Wallace was third. Top female on a road bike was Katherine Simpson (Rock and Roll Cycles).
Gordon now has four victories from his last four rides, dating back to his victory at the RTCC National 50-mile Championship on October 4 2020, with this triumph in Kinross his first race of the season.
The route, on course WE12/01, asks riders to complete a circuit of Loch Leven with a start in Kinross before heading south on B996 then turning left onto the B9097 then onto the B920 towards Scotlandwell and past Balgeddie Toll to finish opposite Kinross High School.
