Aidan McIlroy took a clean sweep of the hills during the penultimate round of the season-long King Of The Mountains series. A dozen riders tackled the climbs of Camp Moor (near Choicelee), Rumbletonlaw and Greenlaw Moor on a balmy evening. Personal challenges raged between the riders strewn further down the hillsides. As Rafal Majka was emerging as the likely polka-dot jersey winner in the Tour de France, Auchencrow Thistle’s competition was more finely balanced going into the final round. Tuesday 2/8/16 marks the start of the 6.30pm meeting times for the remainder of the season – meet at Duns Square for the new Swinton TT has its first outing. Saturday 6/8/16 sees Auchencrow Thistle help put on the mile-long mountain bike race at the Duns Show. It’s open to all ages – you must bring a bike and a helmet – start times to be confirmed, though likely around 1 or 2pm.
