Carryduff - league#8

It was a bright clear night and the sun split the skies…for those that were in the Italian Alps….
But for those in Carryduff, it was somewhat different…..
A spot of rain was interspersed with more rain. 
So it made for a stimulating evening, and particularly enjoyable for those who like a good soaking.

7 brave souls circumvented the Carryduff circuit and all got some form of seasons Best. (albeit not necessarily their time)

Peter Morrison                 28.01
Mark Hanna                       29.27
Conor Preshow                 31.59
Frank Sharkey                   34.08
Peter MCGuckian            35.21

Emma Kerr                          33.54
Geraldine Sharkey           35.21

Temple 2LAP (5th July 2016)

The scheduled Temple 2LAP was unfortunately cancelled due to a blunder with the time keeping.

However, crossing over to a parallel Universe (thanks to left behind portable Alien wormhole generating tech), an alternative TT did happen. In this similar reality there was no time keeping lapse (and brexit voted to stay in and NI played the ROI in the euro final but that's another blog).

The riders were remarkably similar to our Universe in ability although arguably less "whingy". One thing consistent in both Universes was the excuses at the end. In an ironic spin of quantum mechanics the alternate Enda also posted a THU!

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.



27 - Titanic (Head to head final)

3 - Drumbo Hill Climb
