Sam Dooley Memorial 25 TT - Westferry
Location: Bishopton, Renfrewshire
Event: 25 August 2013
Report: Snowdon Sports/Kenny Steele
Iain Grant (www.dooleys-cycles.co.uk) retained his Sam Dooley Memorial title on a glorious morning on the Westferry with a time of 51:20.
Blue skies met the riders as they congregated at the strip at Bishopton and those with early starts got the benefit of the still conditions.
A breeze picked up as the morning went on. Andrew Whitehall was an early leader back at the strip in a fine time of 54:56 with the big hitters still to finish. Jim Cusick (Glasgow Couriers) finished second in a time of 53:20 with Barry McGurk (Glasgow Road Club) taking third place with a 54:07 but there was no stopping reigning Scottish Champion Grant as he powered to victory.
There was a victory for the reigning Scottish Ladies Champion, Jay Burgess (Sandy Wallace Cycles) as well with a winning time of 61:26.
A special mention goes to the sole youth entry in the field, Stuart Turvey (Sandy Wallace Cycles), riding a restricted gear fixed wheel. He was just outside the hour with a time of 60:05.
The event also saw the crowning of Alan Holmes as Johnstone Wheelers 25m Time Trial Champion 2013 with a time of 56:30.
