The VTTA “Boomerang Trophy ” two person
time trial takes place this Sunday at Blair Drummond. All the ‘auld codgers’ will be doused in disinfectant and thrashed dry by a Viking girl wearing a horned helmet and PVC thigh boots. It is hoped that this will deter further spread of this cursed F&M .
The Sunday field extends to 80 riders with the appearance of Graeme O Bree having joined up with the East Hackney slaphead,Steve Flindall. By all accounts Flindall has paid his Fullarton clubmate £3.84, and a tattered copy of Playboy, to induce him to ride this event. Scottish Champion and the Peter Pan of cycling Davie Gibson, GS Modena is partnered with George Cowan, Glasgow RC. Davie Gibson, claims to approaching forty, but from which direction? Even the supervet Wee Davie Zimmerman Millar will be in attendance. Many of the favoured winners of this trophy will be absent leaving and opportunity for Jack Barbour, the 77 year old Royal Albert vet and chance to win for the sixth time. Jack is so old he can remember when Heinz only had one variety.
The event starts, unusually, at 12 midday and any late entries will be accomodated, providing they have no chance of winning.
