Alex Hunter set the groups as follows......

Dougie Nicholson ,Jim Beckett, Danny McLaughlin and Grant Foley.

2nd with a minute gap .
Robert McCready,Eddie Thompson,Derek Robinson,Mark Smith,Alistair Gillespie and George McCarter.

3rd with 2minutes.
Stu Carmichael, Paul McGonigal, Matt Hennon and Scott Newman.

The second group came together with first between top of holmston and inverkip. They worked together in and out of power station, at that stage of coming out of power station the scratch group were not to be seen which means they were in the power station turn.

The combined group still working evenly knowing the chase was on knew they had to get to the top of the kennels to have a chance.

Sure enough the pursuitants caught the escapees at the crest of the col de kennels .

Matt and Paul powered down the decent with captain McCready and lieutenant McCarter latched on to their wheels.

With no chance of any second group members putting their noses at the front the silent assassin AKA Scott Newman made an attack !!!!!!!.

Once again captain and lieutenant marshalled the move.

At the light house the assassin relented and Stu with Paul attacked with all the bunch joining in making a fast groupetto.

Matt went with 100 to go and held it to the line with Stu sprinting from the inside of the group to take a good second .

First group time..........32.18 to 35.14
Second group..............30.13 to 34.14
Scratch..........................28.13 to 28.32.

Hopefully 2 laps next week.
