Simpson impresses at Ben Rinnes
Scots junior sensation Robbie Simpson showed once again this weekend why he is one of the sports brightest prospects when he beat Joe Symonds’ course record and a good quality field at the Dufftown Games’ hill race the Ben Rinnes 5 Tops
Reports are that he beat top Scot Jethro Lennox by a big margin (10 mins), and though we are not sure on the story of the race that is an impressive performance against a man who has been in pretty good form recently!
