Temple - league#9 (22nd July 2014)

Glorious weather for another Temple TT. The sun glinting off the lake at the sweeping banked left turn was a sight to inspire any tired legs.

Ali McConnell took the honours this week in the female category. It was noted that Miss Kerr in second place might have been faster had she not coasted down the hills.

Performance of the night goes to Gavin Browne who got a satisfying PB - is there any other type?

Finally, some lyrics to help Enda whose cycling has been going through a perceived rough patch this season:

"The line it is drawn
And the curse it is cast
The slow one now

Will later be fast
 

As the present now
Will later be past
The order is
Rapidly fadin'
 

And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin'  "

-Dylan 1963

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?
