Time Trial No. 3

Wednesday’s Individual Time Trial was held in near perfect conditions with just light winds and warm temperatures. In the ladies race, Eleanor Rooney had a fantastic ride to finish in first place in a time of 36:05 with Martina Coughlin taking second place with a 43:40 time. Unfortunately Pauline McCauley was forced to withdraw with technical issues - lesson learned, check your saddle bolt is securely tightened!! The mens race was highly competitive and turned up some great results with Frank Timoney improving yet again to take 7 minutes in total off his Cara TT Time just four months ago. Stevie, Eamon, Seanie, Paschal and Thomas all showed improvement from their last TT. John Rooney due to a late start didn’t have the benefit of having someone to chase but that didn’t stop him from putting in a fine time.

Just 33 seconds separated speed demons, Gabriel Timoney in third place and Club Junior, Marcus McGowan in second, however, Aidan Ferguson showed his dominance by finishing with a clear 1:37 lead to take first place.

Well done to all who participated. Next Time Trial will be on Wednesday next, 8th June.
