For­mer cy­cling champ is chief­tain


For­mer in­ter­na­tional road cy­clist Rod­die Rid­dle has been named as the chief­tain of this weekend’s Gor­don­stoun Ju­nior High­land Games.

The event, now in its 29th year, gives young­sters the chance to take part in a range of tra­di­tional games, such as hag­gis hurl­ing, caber toss­ing and tug o’ war.

There will also be danc­ing per­for­mances and pip­ing and drum­ming com­pe­ti­tions through­out the day.

Rid­dle will cheer the com­peti­tors on be­fore hand­ing out the prizes, and hopes to raise aware­ness of di­a­betes, which he was di­ag­nosed with at the age of 40.

All pro­ceeds will be donated to NSPCC and Chil­dren 1st. For more in­for­ma­tion, , visit www. ju­niorhigh­landgames.
