SHANE FENTON reports from Burntisland Links.

The recent heatwave saw the Burntisland Links baked hard by the sun, which made for ideal conditions for both the runners and cyclists. A large Fife Fair Monday holiday crowd added to the atmosphere.

The £250 prize in the Open 90 metres Handicap was won by virtual backmarker David Brand, running from the 5.5 metres mark the Dunfermline Track & Field man scorched up the track to break the tape in 10.17 seconds, filling the minor berths were two former New Year Sprint winners David Lauder, Hawick and Graeme Lister, Kirkcaldy.

Front-marker Mhairi Henderson, held off all challengers in the Open 200 metres Handicap to win her first race in the senior ranks, the T.L.J.T. runner crossed the line in 22.08 seconds with runner up Graeme Lister and third placed Willie Bates,Tullibody closing her down rapidly.

Bates gained consolation in the Open 800 metres Handicap as he stayed on strongly up the home straight to hold off backmarker Colin Welsh, Kelso and Jon Lowis,Kirkcaldy in 1 minute 58.30 seconds.

Evergreen Coaltown of Balgonie veteran John Thomson ended a recent frustrating bout of seconditis to win the Open 1600 metres Handicap in 4 minutes 23.36 seconds, the consistent Dean Whiteford, Innerleithen finished second with Willie Bates in third.

Running from a reduced handicap for his win at the Alva Games 48 hours earlier Kelso's Wayne McIntosh was again a ready winner of the Open 3200 metres Handicap, the Borderer clocked 9 minutes 48.33 seconds in beating John Thomson and Dean Whiteford.

There was a close finish to the Youth's 90 metres Handicap with Natasha Turnbull, Peebles pipping Saturday's Alva victor Euan Smith, Central AC in 10.25 seconds, with Aaron Russell, Peebles 3rd.

Smith was soon back in the winners enclosure after producing a fine run to win the Youth's 200 metres Handicap, running from the 45 metres mark he held off the late thrust of backmarker Ryan Houten, Cadrona stopping the clock at 22,89 seconds. Luke McLean, Peebles was third.

Jason McIntosh, Kelso is currently enjoying a good season on the circuit and he added to his recent wins by racing to victory in the Youth's 800 metres Handicap coming through the field from the 45 metres mark to snap the worsted in 2 minutes 05.91 seconds, double Alva winner Tyler White filled the runner up spot with Adam Canavan, Bannockburn in third.

The solid under-wheel terrain made for some exciting cycle racing, Craig Hardie, Dalgety Bay came through the field from the backmark to claim victory in the 3200 metres Handicap and made it a double by edging out Alan Clark, Thurso in the Deil tak the Hindmost. West of Scotland riders won the other two races on the card, James Melville, Dumbarton was the victor in the 1600 metres handicap with Steve Jackson, Glasgow winning the 4800 metres Handicap.

At time of writing i don't have the final results from the heavy events, it was however an international field of six throwers including newly crowned SHGA World champion Scott Rider and runner up Bruce Robb who was the only Scot in the line-up on the Links
