Carryduff - League#2 (15th April 2014)

Dry and bright conditions were on offer for the second league race on the Carryduff circuit. Unlike last weeks course there was no sissy coffee break at halfway.

Neville O'Neil performed an intense warm up on the turbo trainer oblivious to the smell of burning rubber from his rear wheel. It was perhaps no surprise when just outside Ballygowan the Olympian's journey ended with a puncture.

Also of note was the pre-race banter between Team Velo Cafe-magasin and Team Kaners. The main conversation seemed to be about how pretty their cycling shorts and jersey's were rather than anything worth reporting on!

Next week we join the QUB brick sessions at the harbour estate. Details will be posted here before next Tuesday.

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.

Entry Requirements
Participants must have a current Triathlon Ireland license (either associate or full membership) - no exceptions. Participants must be a member of a Triathlon Ireland club.

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?

The calendar can be viewed at the bottom of this page. The TTs take place on Tue nights at either 18:45 PM or 19:00 PM sharp from various locations - please see links for maps on this page.

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.

What is the League?
The league is a series of 12 individual TTs with a competitor's best 6 results counting. There will be a separate league for the boys and girls.

Time keeping and marshaling duties?
Marshaling and time keeping duties are shared each week between the competitors.

Legal stuff

TI also covers for members for 25,000 euro in the event of death or disability following an accidental injury.
