Temple 2LAP (16th July 2013)

The second 2LAP Temple TT ran in good conditions for a change.

Enzo Marron decimated the field, taking 70 seconds of his 2LAP Temple PB.

Mechanical failure this week went to Neville who had a problem with his bottom bracket.

Sporting acheivements outside of the TT are not usually mentioned in these blog posts. The main reason for this is there would be too many to consistently mention (showing what a talented bunch you are). However, congratulations go to Mark Millar this week for an excellent time of 10 hrs 1 min in Roth Ironman. Mark is a regular at the TT and has improved steadily over the last 12 months.

Temple 2LAP (2nd July 2013)

The TT started in moderately dry conditions but after a few minutes a deluge of rain came along creating large puddles and fogging visors.

The riders went off in minute intervals although that did not stop Mr McHenry subtracting 30 seconds, rather than the mathematically simpler 1 minute, from the stop watch times. If nothing else the "30 second subtract" test keeps the mind razor sharp.

The Lonnens were their usual tardy selves. Rumour has it that it may be Dave at fault - spending time doing his hair or something. Definitely would not be Mrs Lonnen!

Enda was not so much as a DNF but a THU (Throw Head Up). The THU was attributed to a lack of calories in the diet.

Next week we are back brick training with our close relatives (QUB) at the Harbour Estate.
Start time:  6.15 meet for 6.30 start

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.
