Harbour Estate 3rd July

A great evening for racing on a quiet road made for time trialling. A flat course which can be hit with fairly strong headwinds. As it happened the weather was near perfect with just a small breeze to slow down the riders on the way out.

The course was a variation of last years course, a little longer, coming in just over 20km.. Last year, Conor Preshaw was crowned King of the Heron Road loops.. this year, Conor Preshaw is still the reigning Harbour course champ, supported on the podium by Desi and Emma.

Leeanne oversaw proceedings and took charge of the stop watch.

Conor "Harbour King" Preshaw 33:57
Desi "Father of the house" McHenry 36:46
Emma "Harbour Queen" Kerr 36:58
Naomi "the newest legend" Broughton 37:03
Sean "the Mechanic" O'Hagan 37:23 (small mechanical to deal with)
Mark "the Quiet Man" Gormley 37:27
Peter "the Bionic Man" McGuckin 39:48
Gary "the Sweeper" Hazlett 41:04

Next race Temple, 24th July - Conor P to marshal.

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.
