The Time Trial specialists from the Carrick Cycling Club made their way to Fordoun last weekend for the Scottish National 50 mile TT Championships.

The riders were greeted on Sunday morning with blustery conditions which would hamper the first 25 miles of the course and prove to be decisive in the battle for the medals.

Kenny Armstrong pulled out all the stops and narrowly missed the bronze medal spot with a fantastic time of 1 hour 48 minutes and 22 seconds.

Armstrong’s time was the fastest of all the Ayrshire clubs on the day with fellow CCC members Skilling and Robb both recording strong times of 1hr and 55 minutes.
