Lochore Cyclocross Race

Postby Guy_Walker » Sun 26 Nov, 2017 10:38 pm

The Fullarton CX-ers have been in action again. Stalwarts Catherine Logan and Scott McKendrick flew the FWCC flag at last weekend's Lochore Cyclocross Race in Fife. The hotly contested women's race took place in bone chilling four degree temperatures. Catherine put in a great ride coming home in the top 33, ahead of some key rivals. Even better, she was 11th placed Vet Female, and 1st female rider in the Ayrshire clubs competition. Meanwhile, in the Vet 40 race, Scott McKendrick realised too late that his race shirt was still in the ironing pile back at home so instead donned his favourite wool jersey and, given the conditions, this was a good call. Scott arrived with two bikes, one of them a single speed machine, meaning there was good chance he would actually finish the race... and finish it he did! In a manoeuvre that 1970's Formula 1 star James Hunt would have recognised, McKendrick moved through the field early with maximum aggression. After seven minutes, however, he started to tire and with every pedal stroke moved progressively (some might say inevitably) back down the pack. A final position of 96th out of 119th was enough on the day for 3rd in the Ayrshire clubs competition…out of five riders. Scott was nevertheless delighted with the result, saying "the main thing was how good the bike looked. I could see it was drawing many admiring glances as it trundled along slowly through the muck".
