Lakes Riders in Action in the Tour of Ayrshire

Two Lakes RC members (that I know of…maybe more?) were in action in the Tour of Ayrshire Gran Fondo event on the 29th April.  This 70 mile event with 4627ft of climbing takes place on fully closed roads around the Ayrshire countryside, and both riders did great rides to finish well up in the event and their age groups.

In between jet-setting around the globe (!), Adrian Turner rode the Gran Fondo Sportive, covering the route in 3:56:20 and coming in 31st in his age group…and qualifying for the Gran Fondo World Championships taking place in Albi, France, in August of this year – well done Adrian!

Derek Leggett rode the Gran Fondo Race, which covers the same course ahead of the sportive event, completing it in 3:34:35 and coming in 18th in his age group – a great ride!

A good effort gents – if anyone else was involved in this event, then contact us and let us know!
