Cyclists firmly in the saddle at events

The David Campbell Memorial 82 mile road race took place from Kennoway.

The race was part of the Scottish Road Race Series and the course took in four laps of Kennoway, Craigrothie, Springfield, Pitlessie and Cadgers Brae, then two around Kennoway and Star.

Winner of the race was Rapha/Condor professional James McCallum.

The race incorporated the Fife Road Race Championships and Team Leslie Bike Shop/Right Move Windows had four riders battling for the prize in the bunch sprint, with Kevin Barclay taking the title ahead of 16 year-old Callum Foster, with John McCaffery and Gary McCrae close behind.

The annual May Day Gallop handicapped road race at Falkirk also went to James McCallum, but Tony Reidy tried hard to repeat the victory in last year’s race of his dad Raymond, but had to settle for third place.

The Scottish 10 mile TT Championships at West Ferry had a few of the town riders competing, with Rab Carson taking a creditable eighth place in 21 minutes and eight seconds.

Other local times were Graham Barclay 22.31, Jim Meek 23.59, all Leslie Bike Shop, Alan Solway 24.58 Kennoway Road Club, Alistair Speed 29.05 Fife Century Road Club.

Winner was Arthur Doyle, Dooleys Cycles 20.04.
