Barcaldine cyclist Catriona MacGillivray set a Scottish 100-mile time trial record on Sunday, just over a year after giving birth to her daughter Charlotte.
Following her success, she posted on Facebook: ‘I don’t normally post about my cycling and beware this is a long one, but I’m feeling pretty pleased with myself today and I have so many people I want to thank.
‘Today I won the Scottish 100-mile championship with a new Scottish record of four hours and 53 seconds. A team win and a Scottish record with Pam L’Craig.
‘Today will also be my last TT for the time being.
‘I have had an amazing season and never thought I could come back after having Charlotte and have such a great season.
‘Ten-mile Scottish champs silver, 25-mile Scottish champ gold, 50-mile, Scottish champs gold, 50-mile Scottish record.
‘Along with my great team mates, we also secured team gold in all Scottish champ events.
‘All these results wouldn’t have been possible without lots of support and help, the amazing Daniel Barnett, my coach who has managed to get me back fit again on only five hours’ training a week. This guy knows what he’s doing!’
