Temple 21st August

A shortened course due to some roadworks, although only shortened by less than a kilometre, so still plenty of road to race on - this shows the value of the marshal checking the course beforehand to make sure that everything is clear and safe - well done to Vaughan and Glen for their vigilance.

The racing saw another masterclass from Conor McG, coming home in an incredible 25:58. Sean O'H and Peter completed the podium.

Just behind was the Desi and Emma showdown, with Desi taking the honours this week, although Emma did claim she was "tapering" before her trip to Austria...  Leeanne continued her improvement with a sub 40 minute 38:35.

Conor McGandy 25:58
Sean O'Hagan 30:01
Peter McGuckin 31:05
Desi McHenry 32:07
Emma Kerr 32:28
Gary Hazlett 35:17
Leeanne Stewart 38:35

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.
