Winner Ben Greenwood, Rapha Condor
Ben attacked on the final five mile section of the race after 5 and a half laps of the Gifford circuit, a loop to the south of Haddington. He soloed up to the finish line at Redstone Rigg, a climb with two sections with gradients of up to 17%.

Endura RT’s Evan Oliphant and Callum Wilkinson came 2nd and 3rd, with Stirling Bike Club’s Robin Wilkins 4th.

Stirling also enjoyed a particularly strong ride from young junior Jack Barrett.

I hung on to the bunch for about 4 laps, and was feeling the pace pretty badly. I carried on, determined to finish and limped up the climb second last, but there were plenty of abandonments!
