Race Results 

17 riders arrived ready to join battle on the testing Beattock 25 course last night. The warm, sunny evening with only light winds allowed for some good times on a course that, in its present somewhat worn condition, is not a particularly 'fast' one. 

Gary Jamieson of Fechan Flyers and Gavin Church of Dumfries CC battled it out at the top of the timesheet, with Gary just nicking the win by 3 seconds in an impressive time of 59:02. Frances Butler of Dumfries CC was fastest female. 

Well done to all those who took part. 

Round 5 is on 24 July, hosted by Fechan Flyers.

Beattock 25 safety points:

Please note that you need to familiarise yourself with the course. Due to a lack of volunteers it's unlikely the turn will be marshalled. Sign on is at the garage building in Beattock (pictured here). Please park with consideration for residents.

Wait in the small layby at the start, do not wait on the road. Take care riding to the start, particularly at the Beattock/Abington/M74/Moffat roundabout.

Riders will encounter one left turn and pass through roundabouts three times on the course. Follow the rules of the road and ride within the limit of your ability at all times. The traffic count on this stretch of road is low but there are some HGVs and traffic on the A701 moves at speed so be alert and ride with appropriate caution at all times.

The road through Johnstonebridge is rutted on the left of the southbound carriageway. Please safely move out to ride on the smooth surface to the right of the lane before returning to the left of the lane as you pass the old filling station. There is another pothole to be aware of on the left at the bottom of the descent off the M74 overpass before Dinwoodie Lodge. Eyes open, please!

Riders will arrive at the junction with the A701 soon after the finish. Take extra caution and consider using the cycle path back to Beattock.
