Summer Monthly Time Trials

Role Reversal

 

Thus far Tony Devlin has limited his appearances in the summer time trial series to the longer distance and back in April set the 5 k course record.
 
On the other hand, Russell McAdam has taken part in all time trials and has been steadily chipping away at his times.

On Time Trial Saturday, the big two finally went head to head in a symbolic enactment of Evans and Schleck who would meet later in the day on the grander stage of the Tour of France.

While the slightly less elevated atmosphere of Powfoulis did boast almost Gallic sunshine, unlike Grenoble there was the usual breeze off the Forth to make things interesting up the home straight!

In the cycling event the older Evans set off first, but here Russell had the added pressure of knowing Tony would be using his years of experience to eat into the one minute gap between them.

Newcomers Alex Watson and Allan Mackay missed the crucial turning at halfway ruling themselves out of contention this time.

While history will show that the elder Evans triumphed in cycling, youth had its day in our more modest event with McAdam holding on for victory by the slimmest of margins- just two seconds!

Tony did have the consolation of his record remaining intact for the time being but could be under serious threat given favourable conditions in September.

Next month it’s competition with the Park Run as we return to the Caley for the one mile TT.
