Cycling: Mitchell wins time trial

editorial image

Robbie Mitchell confirmed last year’s promise by winning Auchencrow Thistle’s season opening time trial.

He powered the five miles on the Preston-Chirnside road 11 seconds ahead of Neil Milton, with Mike Horne rounding out the podium at 58s.

There were several new faces (and bikes) on a cool, still evening, with Lester Grant impressing on his debut in fifth.

Jane Holmes was first woman on a night that saw a club best six women racing.

Family dramas emerged: Zara Milton edged her younger brother Danny, while Gus Massie was faster than his wife Katie Massie, but beaten by her aunt Judith Anderson.
