Harbour Estate - 31st July

New faces, returning faces, 11 racers, 10 finishers... this time trial had a little bit of everything.

A huge welcome to new legends, Adam and Christine who both performed well on their first outing. A shout out also goes to Ramesh who is surely talking himself into a cycling return having turned up to help with the timekeeping!

Hanna and McGandy were the fastest two on the night, with Pollock completing the podium. McCormick did superbly on his first run finishing with an impressive 37:07 and Clarke, our other new legend proving that she's not here to make up the numbers with a time of 43:19.

Unfortunately, not everyone rode the course as it was meant to be ridden. Purnell gets the years first DNL - Did Not Listen.. imagine the surprise of McGandy and others, seeing Purnell coming down the Heron Road the wrong way.. its a pity as Purenll's time would surely have been in the mix on the podium.

Pan Hanna - 31:18
Pan McGandy - 31:56
Pan Pollock - 34:11
Pani Kerr - 35:52
Pani Broughton - 36:30
Pan McCormick - 37:07
Pan McGuckin -37:23
Pan Gormley - 37:25
Pani Clarke - 43:19
Pani Stewart - 46:44
Pan Purnell - DNL (27:36)

Gary kept time, supported by Bogdan and Ramesh - Looking forward to seeing you next week Ramesh! Ballygowan to Killinchy is next week, marshalled by Emma and Mark H.

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.
