Sat TT_09. 10 TT Kilcock.

So. The end of the drought, if today was anything to go by. More like a miserable morning in April 🙂

Ten very wet and cold riders and the same for the Marshals and timekeepers.
Thanks to Harry and Michael on the watches, Victor pusher off, and to Dave, Brendan and Eddie on the roundabout.
Next Saturday is the 50 TT Championships at Moy Valley. Note. First man off is 0900 not 1000 which has appeared inadvertently on an earlier calendar.
On the same calendar the Sanyo Cup on 16th Sept appears as 0900 which is also an error, the correct time being 1000.



Sat TT_07. 10 TT, Johnstown Bridge.

A beautiful morning but a disappointing turnout of just nine riders. I guess holiday time will account for that.
A full compliment of officials and marshals however so all went off safe and well.
Congratulations due to Ian Cassidy on lowering a long standing age 44 record with a great ride of 0:21:32.
Nobody beat handicap this morning but I got a nice bonus by being closest to it :-)..

Nice to see a couple of first time road bike competitors joining us, welcome Paul McDonnell and Gerd Benndorf.

Next Saturday we are at The Hatchet again. Another calm day would be nice 🙂

The following Tuesday, 17th, we are back to evening racing with the Al Fresco 25 TT at Black Bull.


Leisure League update

Next Sunday, 8th July sees Round 7 of the IVCA Leisure League – the We’ll Meath Again Tour.

As the name suggests, this tour will be based in Co. Meath, starting from The Grasshopper Inn, Clonee at 10.00 am.

Below is a report on the Leisure Tour held in May, which served as a good warm up for the Wicklow 200.  Thanks to Tony Pearson for this report.
