May weekend results roundup

The May Day weekend was a busy one for MFCC with races taking place all over the country.

As usual, there is a lot of success to write about:

First up was race #1 of the Aberdeen Evening Series on Thursday. Predicatbly, Kenny Riddle was in the right place at the right time and got himself in the winning break. In the end, he was beaten into 2nd place by the width of a tyre from Granite City’s Dave Anderson.


Brian Widdison also scores a top10 finish from the sprint in the chasing bunch. Full results are here.


Over the weekend, Callum Finlayson decided to try out each step of the podium to see which was his favourite with a 1st, 2nd and 3rd in the 3 races of the Forres Weekend.

The 2nd place was from the 10 mile TT on Saturday with a time of 22:25, just 24 seconds behind winner Gavin Shirey (Dooleys Cycles).  David Smith (MFCC) riding his 2nd TT put in a great time of 23:01 to get 6th place.

The 25 mile TT on Sunday morning was the top step for Callum, finishing in 56:28 at an average speed over the 25 miles of 26.5mph! ┬áThen went on to finish 3rd in the afternoon’s hilly TT.

Anne Murray put in consistently fast times all weekend and was 1st Female across all 3 events.

Full results for the 3 forres TTs: 10TT, 25TT, hilly TT


MFCC also had a lot of representation in the 1st Loch Ness Etape with lots of great times. From the 1081 finishers, there were 7 MFCC riders in the top 20 (Gavin Beaton 3rd, Graham Doig 4th, Iain Gordon 6th, Eric Innes 11th, Brian Nicholas 18th, Chris Goddard 19th Calum Barbour 20th) and lots more in the top 100.


Well done to everybody racing this weekend!
