Pinky Williams trophy - SVTTA 30 mile championship
clear win by almost 2 minutes for Gala C.C.'s Andrea Pogson, the only rider thus far to win
more than one 2017 SVTTA championship, in a time that bettered the
current SC senior and veteran 30 mile TT records.
30 mile championship result.
Ben Smith Trophy - SVTTA 25 mile championship
decisive win in our 25 mile championship by David Millar, returning
from injury. Davie becomes the seventh winner of an
SVTTA championship so far this year but this time the margin was
emphatic and we might expect his name to at the top again over an extra
5 miles at our 30 mile championship at the end of the month.
Thanks to the Law Wheelers for running this event on what was a
very windy day with the riders battling uphill and upwind to the dead
turn at Buchlyvie before being blown back home to the finish.
25 mile championship result.
Harry Roberts Trophy - SVTTA 50 mile championship
to Christine McLean on winning the Harry Roberts Trophy on a windy day
in Fife, a week ahead of her participation in the Island Games in
Sweden. That now makes 6 different winners of our championships so far
this year so we are witnessing very close competition. It was a pleasure
see thirty six Scottish Group members on the start
sheet at Alistair’s Memorial event. The Speed family name goes back
a long way in the SV.T.T.A.
Archie Speed in the early sixties then Alistair
joining him when he reached the magical
age. Now Mhairi and husband Brian with son Gavin
keep the tradition going.

reversal of the top two placings from last month's 15 mile

deal' for Andrea Pogson with 2:04 on
standard over Steve Nutley and the gap between the two being

result with the Gala C.C. rider taking the championship by just 8
