Time trial success leads to 2010 eventBack «
14 October 2010
Fort William could host a Scottish championship cycling event next year in memory of cycling legend Jason MacIntyre. After hosting a successful memorial time trials event on Saturday, organisers Nevis Cycles and West Highland Wheelers, plan to attract the event to Lochaber in 2010.
That would have been the year that Jason MacIntrye would have represented Scotland at the Commonwealth games in Delhi, India, and his widow, Caroline, said that she thought it fitting that the championships should come to Lochaber next year.
Caroline MacIntyre said: ‘It goes to different places each year and it is quite a battle to get it.
‘We would get 120-130 riders, so it’s a big event.’
Caroline also praised the riders who had competed in the memorial time trials event, saying it showed just how highly thought of Jason was in British Cycling.
More than 80 riders took part with Jim Cusack of Glasgow Couriers winning the event overall.
‘It was brilliant’, said Caroline ‘and a fantastic turnout.’
‘I don’t cycle myself but the people in cycling have taken me under their wing.’
