latter achievement winning him the Bill Lennon Trophy with a
the event had to be stopped following an accident between a rider
and a car but of the SVTTA members racing only Tam Gordon and Iain

September - The Reilly and J.Sharp Trophies - SVTTA 100 mile ChampionshipSadly this event was cancelled due to lack of entries.29th. July - John Cusker Trophy - 12 hour championshipAs usual our 12 hour riders had to head south for their fix and these results were recorded at the CTT 12 hour championship.15th. July - Pinky Williams Trophy - SVTTA 30 mile championshipOur 30 mile championship was run on the Blairdrummond course on a fair day although with a strongish wind. The results can be found here.1st. July - Ben Smith Trophy - SVTTA 25 mile championshipOn
a cool, sometimes misty and mostly still day it was Glasgow Couriers'
Davie Millar who took the Ben Smith Trophy with an impressive
'56'. Derek Stewart and Christine McLean filled the remaining the
podium places. The event was run over the 2 lap Stirling course
which passes through many roundabouts and thanks must go to
Stirling Bike Club for a well-marshalled race. SVTTA member Iain Grant rode fastest overall to win the Scottish Cycling championship, his second of the year so far.The
committee would like to apologise to those SVTTA members who were
unable to get a start in the event. It transpires that, due to the
event being run in conjunction with the SC championship, the entry was
over-subscribed and the field was selected on outright merit without
due regard to performance against age standards. Please rest assured
that this matter has been addressed and there should be no such
problem in next year's event.Results here.The VeloVeritas report of the SC 25 mile championship (run concurrently) can be found here.16th. June - John Cramb Trophy - SVTTA 25 mile handicapRobert Ivell of Perth United won the John Cramb trophy on handicap, on yet another cool, wet and windy summer's day.The full results of all the competitions can be found here with the SVTTA result here.Please
note an error in the original results: Elaine Lowden succumbed to a puncture at
15 miles but was recorded as DNS. Results on both this site and on Braveheart have now been corrected.3rd. June - Harry Roberts Trophy - SVTTA 50 mile championshipAnother cold and windy day
greeted the riders as they converged on Fordoun hall alongside the A90,
where the stiff and increasing NE'ly wind was going to make it a tough
day out on this windswept and rolling course. The open event was won by
Carlos Riise who gave a masterclass in '50' pacing, holding enough back
to pull out a 2 minute lead over the last upwind (and mostly uphill..)
12 mile leg back from the turn at Stracathro. Full SVTTA result here.Report on Scottish Cycling website here.20th. May - Jim & Betty Train Trophy - SVTTA 10 mile championshipThe event was run by Law Wheelers on a largely still day
although cold with an early frost and mist lying along the Kippen
flats. The new standards produced a close result in the fight for the
trophies, with the mens and womens competitions being decided by 3
and 6 seconds respectively.

6th. May - The Boomerang Trophy
event attracted a strong entry of 46 teams, 44 of which started on the
day, which dawned cold with a mix of sunshine and hail showers.
the best efforts of Dooleys Cycles' Tam Gordon and Iain Grant, who
blitzed the record for the 24 mile out-and-back course, the trophy was
won by Couriers' Davie Millar paired with team-mate Jim Cusick.
2011 trophy winner Derek Stewart had to be content with second
place on the day under the new standards.
The full result of the veterans competition (including non-SVTTA teams) can be found here.
The course record has now fallen every year since 2007 as detailed below:
2007 David Gibson 52:12
2008 Graeme Cockburn 52:11
2009 Chris Bown 51:24
2010 David Gibson 51:03
2011 Steve Nutley 50:19
2012 Tam Gordon 49:13
hoping to continue that sequence next year had better start
training now though as the Gordon/Grant time of 49:13 looks fast enough to endure for some time to come.
(Note: following a course change for 2013 onwards this record will now stand for the old course).
