Rhoda Kennedy and Alasdair Munro proved quickest in the Caithness CC 10 on Sunday morning, the second of three events in the club’s weekend of time trials.
Kennedy, the 40-year-old Caithness CC rider, clocked 25-12 to finish as fastest female in the event on the WN10/01 course near Thurso, a time that was also a new course record.
Second spot went to Olga Hamilton, the Orkney CC rider who had won the previous day’s 25, but this time she was 16 seconds slower than Kennedy.
Overall fastest was Alasdair Munro, the 19-year-old RT23 rider from Culbokie near Inverness. His time of 21-03 gave him the win by 17 seconds from Andrew MacLeod of Caithness CC who had won the previous day’s 25, while the final podium place went to Thomas Lynch (Orkney CC) in 22-27.
Not far behind was Wick Wheelers rider Stuart Anderson with 22-49 for fourth spot, while fifth went to David MacIvor (West Lothian Clarion) with 23-24.
Just as in the previous day’s 25-mile event, organiser Alasdair Washington (Caithness CC) was the fastest veteran on standard, his time of 27-17 giving him an age standard of +5.06.
The WN10/01 course was similar to the previous day’s 25-mile event, taking riders from the start at Mount Vernon to the south of Thurso and heading south on the A9 to the junction with the A882 near Halkirk, before turning for home.
