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.

TT Training 2019

2019 Rules

You must have a TI licence (a training licence is sufficient), be a member of a triathlon club and have working front AND rear lights on your bike. Cycling helmets are also mandatory. For events marked (ATH) - this means it is an athletes TT, meaning that no TT equipment should be used, such as TT bikes, TT bars, aero helmets etc. You can of course turn up with TT equipment, however, you should be prepared for general teasing and mickey taking as the penalty for doing so!

As we are riding on public roads, the rules of the roads apply. The committee have notified the PSNI of our plans for the season; being seen and riding safely are of paramount importance - these events are very enjoyable and will improve your time trialling, but we should all stay safe when participating in them and we all have a responsibility to ensure that this happens.
