MSC Time Trial League Table

2017 MSC Tri Time Trial Winners, Sarah O'Malley Daly and Gabriel Timoney along with runner's up, Eleanor Rooney and Martin O'Halloran. FINAL RACE - 20KM INDIVIDUAL TT - 26th July 2017 One could have been forgiven for opting to stay by the warm fireside for the final test of the MSC Tri 'Summer' TT league, but seventeen hardy battlers were not deterred by the gusty SW biting breeze.

20km Team TT

Consistent speed and power by Matthias, Barry and Shane saw the three man team take top spot in this evenings team time trial - a 'first over the line' race with varying handicaps.
