The fourth and final round of the Super Quaich cyclocross series took place last weekend with the famous Bo’ness cycle race ‘Dig in at the Dock’ hosting the finale.
200 entrants lined up upon the Forth dockside to do battle in what is arguably the highlight of the Scottish Cross season, with its expert course design and it’s legendary atmosphere where spectators are also embroiled in competitive action with prizes being awarded to the loudest and most eye catching supporters during the days proceedings.
Ayr Burners Cycling QTS provided the excitement for the wee ones as the Sparks made the journey eastward with the balance bike course in tow, with dozens of tots enjoying their own version of the adults course with some games and activities thrown in for good measure.
In the premier race of the day it was the youths who shone through with Harry Johnson of Pro Vision Cycling taking the top spot on the podium, followed by Craig Gow of Tyneside Vagabonds, with Gary Macrae of Leslie Bikes claiming third place.
The final standing in the Super Quaich Series sees Davie Lines of Espresso Cycle Coaching awarded the ‘Quaich’, followed closely by Gary McDonald of Hope Factory Racing and Ian Paton of Velo Club Moulin. Full details of all ‘Burners’ events and rides can be found at www.ayrburners.org
