Drumbo Hill (5th Sep 2017)

A disappointing turn-out with only four athletes beating the end of season blues and making the start line. The horrendous conditions of heavy rain and blustery conditions at Sunday’s Titanic triathlon may have also had an impact on the numbers.

It was good to see Ali is making good progress on her road to recovery. Good luck to Desi who is travelling to Rotterdam next week to take part in the Olympic distance World Championship’s.

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.
