This week saw the third installment of the Ayr Roads/Harry Fairbairn BMW/Sprockets.com 2014 Club League event.

Twelve riders lined up for the 35 mile challenge, which involved the participants being timed over five different sections along an especially challenging route.

Wet conditions failed to dampen the spirits, as a good natured battle ensued within the group. Edward Clifton took the top spot on the day, closely followed by JP Baxter and Kevin Brown. After 3 rounds, the 2014 Club Confined League has Paul Gibson in 1st position on 123 points, Edward Clifton in 2nd place with 120 points, and JP Baxter sitting just behind with 119 points.

Club member Grant Young, who in 2013 embarked on an epic 4000km charity cycle from the North Sea to the Black Sea, has been chosen to carry the Queens baton in South Ayrshire on the 20th of June. Grants fantastic cycling achievement saw him gain many nominations for the prestigious job of Commonwealth Games baton carrier. Congratulations to Grant on this illustrious appointment.
