Carryduff - Ballygowan Race 12 (1st Sep 2009)

Back on the 31st March, Neil Masterson won the first TT in a time of 31:47. Tonight Vaughan finished the last TT of the season with a time of 29:23, some 5 secs outside Enda's course record. Incidently, Neil has been recovering the last 6 weeks from an operation and we hope to see him back out next year.

Luckily the rain was mostly over by the start and Dave Lonnen just made the startline after puncturing on the cycle up. The general consenus is that pan racer tyres are a bitch to get off.

Glen, heavily fatigued after Lap the Lough on Sunday, wimped out and opted to help Emma timekeep. Thanks to the time keepers.

Keep an eye out for an announcement about the prize giving. All the money collected will be going towards prizes so don't miss out.

Thanks to everyone throughout the last few months for contributing to an enjoyable series of TTs. We hope to continue with something similar next year.

2018 News

The TT 2018 series is currently in a planning stage.

What's it all about?

The TT league is a series of training events for triathletes from local Triathlon Ireland affiliated clubs. These are timed sessions, not races, and there are a number of different events that reflect a fun element. The organisers are all volunteers. In June there is a BBQ and in October there is a prize giving evening.

Riders must have a working red rear light on their bike and sign a disclaimer before each event.

How much does it cost?

There is no cost however there is a suggested donation, which can made at the start of the season, of £30 to cover running costs.

When and where are the events?

In the event of having to cancel an event a note will be put on this website between 5PM and 6PM on the day of the event. One reason for cancelling would be because of bad weather.
