Andrew Scorey continued his excellent form with another personal best of 24.56 and a 10 point maximum to take the Berwick Wheelers Handicap League title, deposing long term leader Neil Wilson in the final race of the season.
Neil, despite a drop in form over the last few races, just managed to hang on to second place by a point from Harry Armstrong.
The Scorey boys took the top two spots in the league points for the second week in a row on the night, with Andrew’s brother Will taking second spot in 25.51 yet another PB and Harry in third.
Fastest overall was Harry on 21.58, Steve Rowley took second in 23.05 and Brian Lindsay third on 24.07.
Ride of the night was Andrew Scorey’s, not only did he beat 25 minutes for the first time, he was also held up by a lorry across the road during his race, but an honourable mention goes to both his brother Will and Dom Ginn, both posted new PB’s. Something tells us that next season will see a lot of quick rides coming through from these guys.
The following weekend saw Brian and Neil travel to Cramlington for a 10 miler, Brian posted a ride just short of his PB 22.44. Rather surprisingly, having had poor form for the last three races in a row, Neil managed to hit great form riding a 23.58 for a new PB by 34 seconds, beating the magic 24 minute barrier for the first time and winning his category, gaining some consolation for missing out on the club’s league title two days before.
This week sees the last race of the season, the club hill-climb championship. A good turnout is expected and it looks like being a three-way battle between Harry, Tim Caine and last year’s champion Ewan Minty.
Based on Hardens Hill near Duns, just up from Duns Golf Club on the Longformacus road, riders meet from 6.30pm for a 7pm start. As in previous years there will be a short group ride afterwards.
