Woah! What has been going on? Where have the mighty ARCC been? Who knows and who cares you might ask, shrugging your shoulder nonchalantly.
Well more fool you!
Some of the team were involved in a wee bike event last week named after a bandit or something or other.
Its over now so back to business. Kenny, Mark and Mick set a new team record over 10 miles on the Eglinton course. It was a good event masterminded by our fiendish nemesis the Fullarton Wheelers. Neil Walker threatened to spoil our parade by riding a 21:03, but thank goodness Kenny Armstrong drew even with him to ensure all was not lost in the Ayrshire top dog contest. (or should we fess up and admit that thank goodness it was an Ayr Roads man holding the watches… shock, horror, of course not.)
This post will benefit from a picture. So lets see what we can find.
This blog now has a new editor, young Gavin Kerr of Trabboch. We implore you to blame him for all rogue postings.
What else might be happening in the land of Ayr Roads CC? Some wannabee’s attended the 4th Cat Lothian Flyer today. Big Bernie was in a break, but it didn’t work out and some minor placings in the top 20 were all we had to show for a day of hard work in the pissing rain. John-Paul Baxter once again shirked any sense of responsibility and failed to attack on his own and win. Even though he could of done. Take note other Scottish club teams: we might have very few points on our collective licences, but we could if we wanted.
There is a 50 on soon, promoted by Gentleman Jim Cusick. And the pressure is on for a new 50 record according to vice-president Arnie Thomson. But who is going to break it to the old man that we currently don’t have any documented record? Not us, thats for sure.
And how about these damned Garmin devices. If one more clown wants to tell us that they actually rode a 19:21 on our regular mid week blast around the Loans circuit, despite our watches shouting a high 24 we’ll be damned.
Another picture needed.
Lynne and Toni have been riding very well. New PBs and grand performances in road racing. And while Jo continues to flirt with the idea of moving to the mainland, rumours that ARCC have engaged in attempts to poach Jennifer Nicol from the evil throes of the Fullarton might or might not be true.
You heard nothing here first.
We’ll be running a 4th cat event named the Straiton Struggle in just over a month. Officially its sold out, but if you speak to our ticket touts we might have some availability. Amex not accepted. Sorry.
