TT: Goldsworthy wins Bill Stuart 10


Location: Forres, Moray
Event: 4 May 2013
Report: Snowdon Sports

Silas Goldsworthy (Sandy Wallace Cycles) clinched victory in the Bill Stuart Memorial 10 at Forres on Saturday, clocking 21-57 to win by 44 seconds over his nearest rival.

The 26-year-old from Balerno near Edinburgh showed great form as he successfully defended his title from the same event 12 months earlier, although his time was 13 seconds slowed on the day.

Goldsworthy’s win comes after he also secured victory in the Corrieri Classic back in March, and took second spot in the Tour of the Meldons last month.

Second in the Scottish 25-Mile Championships last season, Goldsworthy’s time pushed team-mate Peter Ettles, 49 and from Elgin, into second place, while Callum Finlayson (Forres CC) was third, another 44 seconds off the pace.

Among the other prizewinners in the event, which attracted around 50 riders, included a win for Keith Smith (Glasgow Wheelers) in the handicap event, while West Lothian Clarion’s Mark Ewing was fastest veteran on standard, exactly three minutes above his age standard.

Moray Firth CC rider Penny Phillips clocked 26-19 to finish as best female, while Danny Headley (Discover Juniors) was the best youth rider.
