Location: Lennoxtown, Glasgow
Event: 8 September 2013
Report: Snowdon Sports
Trailing by 36 seconds after the Crow Road climb, Ben Peacock (Paisley Velo RT) turned up the power over the rest of the Lennoxtown-based course to win Glasgow Wheelers’ 25-mile Tour of the Campsies time trial and deny Arthur Doyle (www.dooleys-cycles.co.uk) a fourth victory in the event.
Veteran Doyle took the prize for the fastest rider up the climb, reaching the top in 8-34 to Peacock’s 9-10, but by the finish 32-year-old Peacock – the Scottish 10-mile champion – had turned things round his way to clock exactly 58 minutes for a winning margin of 21 seconds.
The two were the only riders to break the hour on the testing circuit, Scott Newman (Inverclyde Velo) taking a close scrap for third place in 1-02-53.
