Carrick cycling club

The Carrick Cycling Club were in local action this week at the Pennyglen Time Trial on Thursday evening.

Blustery but dry conditions ensured a tough outward leg along the scenic Ayrshire coast, with the leg sapping climbs around the Heads of Ayr and Croy Shore making the 15 mile course a real test for the forty racers who took to the start line.

Home advantage would play dividends for CCC with all four riders placing in the top ten. Kenny Armstrong took the win in commanding fashion wih a course record time of 34 minutes and 45 seconds. Mark Skilling took second place with 35.17 with Mick Robb and Brian Yates placing in 6th and 8th respectively.

On Sunday a somewhat flatter course was on offer as 3 Carrick CC members headed to Westferry for the St Christophers CC 25 mile Time Trial. The impressive late season form continued for Armstrong as he posted a fantastic time of 52 minutes and 13 seconds which secured 2nd place position on the day. More Top tens followed with Skilling taking 4th with a 54.06 and Robb in 8th with 54.41.
