Olympic Torches

Musselburgh Burgh Primary School -

The children were recently set a homework challenge to make an Olympic Torch that could be carried during the celebrations due to take place when the real Olympic Torch is carried through Musselburgh on the 14th June. The children showed their torches at assembly and Mrs Fleming will be announcing the winners at the school fair on Friday 8th June. The torches are currently being displayed in the front corridor of the school and look like they are already lining the streets of Musselburgh.

Fife CA 10 TT 27/05/12 – Results

Musselburgh RCC -

Lovely warm sunny morning across in Ffe on the Freuchie 10 course.  Nice to race in the warmth for a change and I think this is my favourite 10 course, despite the various turns and rises – I like it:)  Another impressive ride from Rab Carson and I think that’s the 2nd 20 min 10 he’s produced on that course this year.  Next outing for me will be West Lothian Clarion’s 10 at Cambusbarron next Sunday 3rd June.

SVTTA 10 TT – Cambusbarron 20/05/12

Musselburgh RCC -

With the cancellation of our 10 on Saturday I was thankfull for a ride in the SVTTA 10 at Cambusbarron on Sunday.  Left the east in sunshine with it warming up a bit but at Cambusbarron it was overcast and 4 degrees.  This is always a fairly tough course on a relatively calm day but the cold made it harder to get going.  Sticky both ways and ended up with a 24:00 dead.  Didn’t hang around for the results as I had been night shift and bed was calling.  Full results from the organiser at Law Wheelers.

Meadowbank Track League #4 08/05/12 – Timmins wins 8k

Musselburgh RCC -

Great win over some notable riders in the 8km scratch race for Musselburgh rider Derek Timmins. Follow this link to the full results from event number 4 of the Meadowbank Track League.  http://www.estpa.org.uk/newweb/?page_id=231

Also riding was Alistair MackIntosh, Nick Yeats and Andy Laing. 

Wee report form Nick Yeats:

Sunny not warm! Derek, Andy L, Alistair Mac and I all raced at track league #4. Derek’s birthday present to Davie U was a win in the 8k scratch race. Early on in the 8k Derek and David Martin escaped for a couple of laps. Just as you thought the race was settling down then David or Scott Macrae would attack again but to no avail. Any ideas I had of thinking I was going OK were shattered by Derek going over the top for another attack. This came to nothing but it wasn’t Derek’s last throw of the dice. The last 5 laps was a bit of a blur for me but what I could see was Derek well in the pack. Bruce Croall did his usual attack from the back but the speed at the front was too hot with Derek crossing in first. Fantastic win by Derek particularly considering how much he put into mid race attacks and against some top trackies.
