Carryduff - League#5 (14th May 2013)

Two Legends tonight deserve a special mention for battling on in the face of adversity. Mark Millar and Neville O'Neill, bless their little cotton socks, are both back from recent adventures on the European continent. Millar completed a 70.3 in Majorca in a superb time of 4hrs 44mins and O'Neill clocked up 400 miles of cycling in Spain as part of the Invictus training camp.

' Mechanical misfortune (is there any other type) of the night goes to Ms Kerr. The invictus lady t had her chain come off which cost precious seconds. Ms Kerr reckoned after it was at least 20 seconds!

Welcome to new girl Judith Lonnen at her first TT. If Miss Lonnen bares any resemblance to a former TT girl Miss Lowry then it is only in passing. If nothing else the bike times show they are definitely different people.

What's it all about?

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.
