racing, but not racing

A knacked back for new signing Neil, meant no VCM racers on the start line at the Alistair Lees Memorial Mountain Time Trial at Innerleithen today. The event was not VCMless - Neil dropped by, as did Andy, Ros and an in-transit Don. I was there as commissaire and starter.

Helen, Dan and Steve of Innerleithen MTB Racing had set out an awesome course. One big loop which mixed some of the 7Stanes XC, some old-skool stuff and some of the DH too, linked in with some imaginative work. Steep up and down, it was pretty hardcore for XC. Get it in your diary for next year.

Manwinner were Gareth Montgomery taking the win by five minutes from Douglas Shearer and Iain Nimmo. Womanwinner was Lesley Ingram, from Rennel Brennan and Jo Cardwell. Full results here.

it's a dirty job but somebody got to do it.
