After placing second in both the first two rounds, Dooleys Cycles rider Martin Lonie finally secured a win in the Aberdeen District Evening Road Race League, taking victory in round three at Echt in Aberdeenshire.

The 33-year-old from East Kilbride won a big bunch sprint finish to the 38-mile race, holding off 20-year-old Jack Barrett (Velocity 44 Stirling) from Kingussie, while third spot went to veteran Peter Ettles, the 49-year-old all-rounder from Elgin who rides for Sandy Wallace Cycles.
