Peebles pedallers were to the fore as, after six months of intense competition, Scotland’s top young road cyclists finished their season in style.

The ScottishPower Youth Road series launched in Ingliston on March 15 and came to a close earlier this month in Kingscavil.

Peebles CC member Lewis Gray finished first in the Youth A male race while clubmate Corran Carrick-Anderson was the Youth C male winner.

Hometown Edinburgh Road Club had a successful day, as youngster Anna Flynn won the Youth B girls race, defeating rivals Anna McGorum (Peebles CC) and Anna Shackley (Glasgow Riderz) into second and third place respectively.

Anna’s sister Elena secured bragging rights for the McGorum family with a winning performance in the Youth C race final.

Bob MacFarlane, ScottishPower National Youth Racing Series Events Officer for Scottish Cycling, said: “With our current crop of young cyclists, Scottish Cycling is in very safe hands.

“The Youth series has been more competitive than ever before and that’s exactly what we need to help our young cyclists improve and progress.”
