Western Isles cyclist Christina Mackenzie yesterday (Sunday 7 August) won a gold medal and a new record over 100 miles in a national time trial championship.

Christina, who races with Stirling Bike Club and is team manager for the Western Isles Island Games team, was fastest woman and 7th overall in the national 100mile TT championships.

And she set a new women’s record in a time of 4:19:21 over the course, based at Laurencekirk in Kincardineshire and covering 2.5 laps of the A90 between Stonehaven and Stracathro.

The Stornoway cyclist holds both the women's solo Land’s End to John o’ Groats (Lejog) cycling world record in a time of 51:05:27 and the North Coast 500 women’s record, earned last year with a time of 36:39:07.
