It's June. The shivering riders and wooly-hatted timekeepers would fool you into thinking it's March, but no, it's June! A gusty north-easterly wind was a feature of this evening's 17.5 mile Park Farm hilly TT. It was overcast but dry!

Despite the tricky conditions we had some fast times. Gavin Church led the way again with a superb 43:31 on his first time on the course. Craig Gibson and a resurgent Stephen Spellacy battled for the remaining podium positions, with Gibson bettering Spellacy's time by just 8 seconds. Meanwhile, McNeil and Frances Butler continued their season-long battle, with McNeil stopping the clock 13 seconds before Butler.

It's always brilliant to welcome new riders to our events. On this occasion Ian Gilbert of Hebridean CC (turning a fixed gear along with Neil Pearson tonight) and Mike McKay joined us for the first time. The hilly course seems to have really suited McKay in particular!

Massive thanks from all the riders must go to officials Gordon McNeil, Esther Hamill, Stuart Garner and Shaun Wylie for their help tonight.
